Correspondence of E.P. Bowerman, 1937
This letter, presumably sent to physicians in Gibson County, Tennessee, describes the onset of nursing services at delivery for residents of the county beginning October 21, 1937. The author of the letter is the Assistant Health Officer of the county. The letter clearly describes the nursing service available and the conditions of the service, and restrictions, contact information and procedure. One limitation noted describes the necessity of registration prior to the 5th month of pregnancy, and another the requirement that a physician be present.
