The Franklin County Public Hospital in Greenfield, Massachusetts, educated student nurses from its formation in 1895 until 1963, when the nursing education unit was shifted to the Greenfield Community College. Student nurses were quickly integrated into the day-to-day operations of the hospital, performing important duties such as cleaning, assisting patients, and other aspects of nursing. Their uniforms clearly indicated their rank in the hospital hierarchy, signaling to patients and staff that they were fledgling members of the hospital community. This uniform was worn by Therese Mann Hinkell of Turners Falls, Massachusetts, a graduate of the class of 1951.
