Scope and Contents:
Frontier Nursing Service, 1925. 1 reel (1635 ft.) : si., b&w ; 16mm. positive. Summary: In 1925 the new kind of "fetched-on" woman first appeared in the wild Kentucky highlands. In the saddle in all weathers, she found her way to isolated mountain cabins making friends with bright-eyed children, tending women in childbirth, spreading ideas of "furrin" sanitation, and hygiene. These are true stories, acted by the people of the county who volunteered in appreciation of the nursing service to reproduce scenes of their everyday life.

The Frontier Nursing Service provides child hygiene, midwifery, sick nursing, medical care, dentistry, public health, and emergency surgery in the Appalachian Mountains....By means of which the national maternal death rate is cut more than 2/3 in the remote regions and the health of the population raised to a high level. Filmed in Hazard County, KY. Visitors come to visit this remote area to observe the work of these frontier nurses. They are welcomed by Mrs. Mary Breckinrige, the director, to "Beach Fork Center," a gift of Mrs. Nathaniel Ayer of Boston as a memorial to Jessie Preston Draper. She relates an incident of a man who rushed into the center to ask a nurse/midwife to come to assist his wife, who is in labor. She traveled many miles on horseback over rugged terrain, reached the primitive home, and helped to deliver the child.

Assistant director Miss Peacock and Willeford supervise the building of a new center, "The Caroline Butler Atwood Memorial Center, a gift of Mrs. John W. Price, Jr., of Louisville and Miss Atwood. Miss Price visits home of a mountain craftsman whose daughter is ill. Nurses innoculate the school children. Shows nurses riding horseback through rough terrain in bad weather, making house calls to their patients. Tells the story of a man who is a single parent and takes his sick newborn to the Frontier Nursing Service Hospital at Hyden. Another story tells of an "old fashioned shootout." A child finds a man who has been shot in the woods. He contacts the frontier nurses, and they make a stretcher and organize men to carry the patient to the nearest hospital (7 hours) for surgery. Non accession #1984.3074. Print donated by Marvin Breckenridge (Mrs. Jefferson) Patterson. See also The Road.
