Biographical/historical information

The Alumnae Association of the Rocky Mount Sanitarium School of Nursing in Rocky Mount, North Carolina was created in 1934. It was founded to stimulate mutual help, improvement in professional work, and good fellowship among the graduates of the school.

The Rocky Mount Sanitarium was opened in 1913 by Dr. L.W. Kornegay, Dr. John L. Lane, and Dr. Walter Staley as a general hospital of forty beds serving eastern North Carolina. The Rocky Mount Sanitarium Nurses Training School served in conjunction with the hospital. In 1922, it was sold to a Franciscan order of nuns who operated the hospital for one year before selling it back to Kornegay. Over the years, the hospital underwent a few additions and renovations. In 1950, the Sanitarium found it necessary to close the Nurses Training School.
