Nurse Uniforms circa 1900s

Blue and White, 1900s style nurse uniform

The museum recently received a wonderful donation of a 1900s style nurse uniform.  Unfortunately,  this uniform is lacking background information. The blue and white fabric is an “Indian Head” cotton and the white material is a batiste fabric. Do you have any knowledge regarding this uniform or a connection to an early school of nursing?  Is a similar uniform pictured in your school of nursing history? Any background information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated and we urge you to please contact the museum. Let us know by emailing or fill out the museum ‘Contact Us’ form, here.
