This loose leaf notebook contains handwritten lecture notes by a student who took a series of nursing courses in 1924 and 1925. The name on the front cover is L. Bacon. On the very first page, L. Bacon noted that the courses regarded "Practical Nursing: Theory and Practice of Nursing." The notes are extremely practical: how to make a patient's bed, how to take a patient's pulse, how to give an injection, etc.
The notebook is definitely local to Grand Forks, as a newspaper clipping in its pages references an alumnae bazaar at Kappa Alpha Theta on Saturday, November 29, 1924. This group is a Greek social sorority which has been active on the UND campus since 1911. That same clipping also contains an advertisement for the Kozy Luncheonette, which was a Grand Forks restaurant located at 105 North 3rd Street.
