Tribute to St Luke’s Nursing School & its graduates: Library Display for October

We are proud to host a display honoring graduates of St Luke’s Nursing School, anticipating its 100th anniversary in just a few years.  Lucille Horton, Class of ’52, created uniforms, modeled by 15-inch dolls, complete with accompanying caps accurate for each represented time period.

Photos recall the school’s creation and ongoing affiliation as a Catholic institution. Special attention is given to the school pin, an upright red cross with four Greek letters.

The exhibit features a quilt created by the late Pauline Carnevale, Class of ’44, honoring the school’s 57 year history and over 1100 graduates.

It has been observed that very few Pittsfield natives have lives untouched, in some way, by a St Luke’s Nurse. We are proud to have this tribute to their service on display through the month of October. Do stop in and take a look.
