I was born here in 1946 and my father earlier as well. My grandmother and mother were both Nurses there. My mom completed her nursing training there in the 1940's.

I was born here in 1950, my mother who had gone to nursing school her also worked there at the time of my birth. I remember visiting my grandfather there in 1959. He was in a bed with a big square oxygen tent over the bed, from his waist to the top of his head. He died in November 1959 due to heart attack.

My great-aunt, Mary Elizabeth McKay, attended this school from 1907-1908. It was badly managed and the nursing students were treated a bit shabbily. Her parents took her out of the school, partly for this reason and partly because she became ill.
