Halstead. 1976. Casual photo of Frank & Mary Kessler. Mary is wearing a nurse's uniform that was originally worn by students of Halstead Training School, Halstead, KS., in the 1920s. Note with picture: "This uniform (the original) worn by students of Halstead Training School, Halstead, Kansas. We had a two and half year training school. Entered training January 10, 1922. Graduated May 18, 1925. State Board May 27, 1925. Registered Nurse #3046. Also Red Cross Nurse #45823. This uniform was modeled at the 6th District Bi-centennial in Wichita, Kansas, May 12, 1976 which was held at Century Two, with about 900 present. This was the oldest original uniform, and I was given a lovely china slipper, made by one of the Sisters of St. Joseph, as a prize. On July 31, 1976, it was in a window display of Bi-centennial of Halstead School of Nursing Alumni at the 79th Old Settlers picnic. (Mrs. J. B.)
