University Of Virginia School Of Nursing To Host Agnes Dillon Randolph Lecture And Award Ceremony

March 6, 2003-- The University of Virginia School of Nursing will present the Agnes Dillon Randolph lecture and award ceremony on Thursday, March 20, at 4 p.m. in McLeod Hall auditorium.

Lois Monteriro, professor emeritus of community health at Brown University, will discuss “Florence Nightingale’s Views on Women and Women’s Issues.” Following the lecture, Monteriro will receive the 2003 Agnes Dillon Randolph Award in recognition of her outstanding achievements in nursing history scholarship. A nurse historian, Monteriro has researched Nightingale’s letters and personal writings to understand her views on women and the issues Victorian women faced.

The 10th annual Agnes Dillon Randolph lecture is co-sponsored by the Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry and the nursing honor society, Sigma Theta Tau, Beta Kappa chapter. Established in 1991 to support historical scholarship in nursing, the center is dedicated to the preservation and study of nursing history in the United States.

Agnes Dillon Randolph, the great-granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson, was a prominent leader in Virginia nursing. She helped establish the Virginia Nurses Association in 1901 and led the campaign to establish the first graduate nursing program in the South at U.Va.

The free lecture is open to the public. Following the talk, a reception will be held in McLeod Hall, Room 1003.
