Book Description (Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1976) 0869781375, 1976. 8vo; original green boards, lettered in white on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 131, incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper somewhat rubbed and edgeworn, with earlier owner's tape repairs to extremities of spine panel; bottom edges of boards a little shelf-rubbed; occasional foxing. Good condition. "In 1873, after answering an appeal by the Bishop of Bloemfontein for teachers and nurses for the Orange Free State, [Henrietta Stockdale] went to the Clewer Hospital and to the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London to study nursing. . She started her work at Kimberley in 1876 as a district nurse in the mining camps, but by 1877 was assigned as a sister to the Carnarvon Hospital there, where she started the first training school for nurses in South Africa. . As a result of Stockdale's vision and drive, South Africa became the first country in the world to provide for state registration of both nurses and midwives . This remarkable woman, who laid the foundation of professional nursing and modern hospital organisation in Southern Africa, was a singularly attractive person, tall, well-built, with a creamy complexion, soft, dark brown hair, blue eyes and a pleasant voice. She was regarded as a saint by some, and as a keen business woman politician by others. She had a fearless approach to the political questions of the day, and never hesitated to enlist the aid of a Royal Princess when she felt that nursing and the care of the sick were threatened." - DSAB II, pp. 716-7.
