First Graduating Class for Nurses at Ottawa Civic Hospital 1925

My grandmother Isabel (WOODLAND) IRVINE was in that class and can be seen in the front row, far left.  (CLICK on the photo for a larger view).  Grandma graduated fifth in the class and kept her nurse’s registration active until she turned 65.  She attended at my birth and before that at the birth of countless other youngsters in the hills near Young, Saskatchewan.  Her husband Bill Irvine was a homesteader in the area. Surnames mentioned on the back of the photo are Woodland, Mulraugh, Webb, Bennett, Morrison, Wheissel, Sterwart, McIlroy, Richardson, Curren, Byers, Lenohan, McLelland, Maxwell, McDonald, Farmer, Kemp, Mitchell, Payne, Reid, Nexon, Trott, Allison, Boyle, Currie.  (CLICK on the photo for a larger view.)   If you have connections or comments please use the form below.
