Materials in the Navy Nurse Corps Association (NNCA) Archival Collection document the historical importance, activities, and lives of Navy Nurses and the Navy Nurse Corps, as well as the organization and events of the NNCA.||The collection includes administrative records of the NNCA that document the policies, procedures, and actions of the Board of Directors, along with various reunions and conventions held by the NNCA. Incorporated into the archives is the Oral History Collection, which consists of 234 oral histories by former and retired Navy Nurses. The oral histories provide substantial historic evidence of Navy nursing during WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War and illustrate the lives of individual Navy Nurses while in the United States, overseas and at sea. Photographic prints, scrapbooks, and yearbooks also capture the travels and experiences of Navy Nurses on- and off-duty. Also included are the papers belonging to retired Navy Nurse Doris Sterner that document her process of writing and publishing the book, In and Out of Harm’s Way: A Navy Nurse Corps History, and the development of the NNCA’s oral history program. There are also additional historical materials about active, retired, and deceased members of the Navy Nurse Corps.||Records span the period of 1908-circa 2019 though the bulk of the material covers Navy nursing from WWII to the Vietnam era (1944-1970) and the 1990s, when the NNCA was most active.||The materials in this collection include meeting minutes, correspondence, reports, policies and procedures, training manuals, handbooks and guidelines, permits, surveys, special event files, memoranda, research notes, reference files, hospital publications, newspaper clippings, articles, memorabilia, photographic material, scrapbooks, and audiovisual media.||NNCA members expect future additions to the collection as more materials are donated and retired to the archives. The catalog record will be updated periodically as more material is contributed.||Organized into five series: Series I: Organizational Records; Series II: Oral History Collection; Series III: Image Collection; Series IV: Sterner Papers; and Series V: Corps Members||Created and collected by NNCA members through member donations and donations from Navy Nurses’ families and friends.
