Meeting Date


 

Pintlala Historical Association Meeting

The PHA will meet on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Pintlala Baptist Church.

The program will be presented by Haley Aaron (left), Collection’s Archivist at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Her presentation will be based on her article, Alabama Nightingales: WWI Nurses at Home and Abroad, published in the Winter 2017, Alabama Heritage magazine. This article provides a look into the early years of the nursing profession in America and Alabama. The U. S. entered WWI in 1917 and the war environment provided opportunities for young nursing students to test their skills. This led to post-war  occasions for nurses to improve public health in general.

Please join us for this inspiring program.  See you on the 21st – bring dues!
