The mission of the Nursing Archives Associates is to support the History of Nursing Archives in the preservation of the working papers, correspondence, manuscripts, photographs, and histories of prominent individuals, associations, and organizations, both historical and contemporary, who are important in the nursing field, and in making these valuable, unique primary resources available to researchers. These manuscripts and books document the evolution of the profession and its contribution to the fields of public health, women’s rights, and military history. The History of Nursing Archives are a valuable part of the holdings of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
