Description

Health care required the training of medical personnel. A number of hospitals in South Carolina offered programs in nursing training early in the 20th century, mostly in an apprenticeship system of learning by doing. Here, a class of nurses stands in front of the Baker-Dick Infirmary in Sumter where they had been trained in 1905.
