Scope and Content of FondsThis collection consists of handwritten essays and notes, and photographs by Mary Southcott, founder of the St. John's General Hospital School of Nursing.

There are essays about Florence Nightingale's work at Scutari and in England as well as descriptions of nursing in Newfoundland, both at the General Hospital in St. John's, and the tuberculosis camp. Some of her essays were published in British nursing journals. Internal evidence also indicates that Southcott was the Newfoundland correspondent for <italic>The Nursing Times </italic>for a number of years. - Southcott was a keen amateur photographer. The photographs include pictures taken at the General Hospital, at the Waterford Hall convalescent hospital for soldiers during the first World War, and while on vacation in Newfoundland and Ontario. Many of these photographs are identified by comments written on the back by Southcott; however some are not. - Although a small collection, these papers provide insight into the beliefs and attitudes of one of the most influential leaders in the history of nursing in Newfoundland.
