Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection
The National Library of Medicine produced Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection, guest curated by historian and educator Julia Hallam, PhD (University of Liverpool). The traveling exhibition and companion website present a selection of postcards that span a century of images of nursing and nurses and investigates the hold these images exert on the public imagination—then and now. The nursing imagery is informed by cultural values; ideas about women, men, and work; and by attitudes toward class, race, and national differences.
Pictures of Nursing includes an education component with a K-12 lesson plans and two university modules. A digital gallery features a curated selection of fully digitized items from the historical collections of the NLM, which are also available in their entirety in NLM Digital Collections.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.
