I look forward to meeting you and working with you. Most importantly, remember that if you haven't found what you're looking for in 20 to 30 minutes of searching a particular database or the catalog it's time to ask a librarian!

|The Florence Nightingale collection consists of 50 personal letters, dated 1853 to 1893, covering military and civil hospitals, nursing, sanitary affairs in India, and various charitable contributions. The letters were acquired by Dr. Lawrence Reynolds in February of 1951. An original photograph of Florence Nightingale was donated by the Nu Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau and the University of Alabama School of Nursing in honor of Dr. Marie O'Koren.|
The actual letters are housed in the Reynolds Historical Library, a part of LHL's Historical Collections unit. The digitized images of the letters are stored in the UAB Digital Collections along with various other electronic collections including the Pellagra in Alabama collection.
