Nursing postcard collection featured at VCU Libraries
The Kay Seidenberg Nursing Postcard Collection consists of American and European postcards relating to the nursing profession. Kay Seidenberg (B.S. ‘85/N) began collecting postcards shortly after embarking on her nursing career. At first she was more of a generalist in her collecting, but she gradually began to acquire nursing related cards.
While building her collection she learned about Edith Cavell, an English nurse who was executed by the Germans in 1915 for assisting Allied soldiers to escape from occupied Belgium. The “Edith Cavell: A Nurse Who Did Her Duty,” at VCU Libraries’ Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, is now on exhibit and will run through Feb. 5, 2016. Read more.
