History of the 

James Walker 

School of Nursing 

On February 5, 1903, a charier was granted James Walker Memorial Hos- 
pital to organize a school of nursing, and to maintain it. The first superinten- 
dent was Miss Lillie Heller (Mrs. Thomas R. Little). The first class was com- 
posed of two students, Miss Florence Hayes (Mrs. Morris Caldwell) and Miss 
Alberta Robinson. Mrs. Caldwell has the distinction of being the first person 
to obtain a certificate of registration issued to a graduate nurse trained in a 
North Carolina School. She was registered in New Hanover County, July 1, 
1903. The second class was made up of three students and each year the 
number has increased. On September 11, 1950 there is a student body of 103 
in the school of which 41 are preclinical students. 

The first students were required to spend two years in the school. The 
time spent on duty during the day was twelve hours. One and one-half hours 
were spent off duty for recreation. The classwork consisted of lectures by the 
visiting doctors, the superintendent, the director of nursing and the dietitian. 
Classes were held each night during the winter months. The classes at the 
present time spend three years in the School of Nursing before graduation. 
An average of thirteen hundred hours or more is spent in the classroom. The 
student has an eight hour day including class and ward duty. The faculty 
is composed of Nursing Instructors, Doctors, and the faculty of Wilmington 
College for the courses in Science. 

James Walker Memorial Hospital School of Nursing is an accredited 
school and is one of the four largest schools of nursing in North Carolina. 
The total number of graduates from this school since 1903 is approximately 
750. These graduates may be found in the many different branches of nursing 
in all the states in the union and Alaska.

CLASS POEM 



OUR PRAYER 

Our Father which art in heaven above.. 

Keep us aware of thy undying love. 
Lead us in thy righteous way, 

Let us follow thee both night and day. 

As we arise in the mornings, let us say 
A word of thanks for the beautiful day. 

Let us greet everyone with a smile, 

And make new friends along every mile. 

Bless our patients and our every friend, 
Care for them, dear Father, until the end. 

Return them to a healthy life, 

Filled with happiness, and little strife. 

May we learn and work, if it be thy will, 
Until our dreams of the future we fulfill. 

In our nursing career, we pray for success, 
For one and all, let us do our best. 

— Amen 

Wilma Singlelary

CLASS HISTORY 



Does Ihe year 1948 mean anything in ihe lives of us now graduating from 
J.W.M.H.? Oh, but how would we forget the utter bewilderment that was fell 
on that first day here. Many were leaving home and familiar surroundings 
for the first lime, but each one had a keen desire to become a good nurse. 
We'll never forget those first months of readjustment with everyone giving 
us the "once over" and whispering "That's some of the new preclinical 
students" when we passed. 

Those first six months were filled with work and studying. We will 
always feel indebted to Miss Yount and Mrs. Dexter who patiently taught 
us during our "greenest" days. Without their genuine interest and their en- 
couragement and advice, we feel thai more of the class may have dropped 
cut. Of course, we had our fun — sprinkling our sleeping beauties with the 
clothes sprinkler and making "pie beds." Occasionally (but not often) mem- 
bers of the Class of 1951 were restricted because the rules were temporarily 
forgotten, or the housemothers slipped up on us ! 

Soon came the day which we had all long anticipated, our first day on 
the wards. We deeply appreciate the help our head nurses, supervisors, 
doctors, and patients gave during the "learning process." 

Then came our capping exercise. We realized then what the older 
nurses meant when they said the meaning of a nurses' cap is indescribable. 
Our caps meant that we were really a part of our nursing school and were 
being allowed to accept responsibility for care of patients. 

The next year brought our narrow black bands, designating us as juniors. 
We elected our class officers, motto, flower and colors. Miss Yount was 
chosen as our class advisor. This year began those memorable days on the 
obstetrical and pediatric divisions. 

Another day to be remembered came in 1950 when we proudly received 
our senior bands. This brought to mind the fact that we were really ac- 
complishing our goal. Our senior year has been unforgettable. Some of our 
most outstanding events were the Halloween carnival, fish-fry at Shallotte, 
Junior-Senior banquet at the Famous Club and the Senior Dance. 

Our days at the James Walker Memorial Hospital School of Nursing have 
been wonderful. We feel that they have really been worthwhile and loads 
ot fun ! We have made lasting friendships and accomplished a worthy goal. 
As we leave our school to take our places in the many realms of the nursing 
profession, we leave with an undying love for her. We shall always strive 
io uphold her ideals.

CLASS PROPHECY 



TIME: 1957 

PLACE: Home of Mrs. Jimmie Spivey 
Market Street 
Wilmington, N. C. 

Occasion: First visit with Lorraine since graduation. 

Lorraine: Come in Polly, it's the first time that I've seen you in 
ages. We have a lot to talk about, but first tell me 
about our classmates. 

Polly: Let me see — oh yes, Mary Alice Rivenbark is at 

Charily Hospital in New Orleans studying Anesthe- 
sia and Macie Duncan, I mean Edwards is working 
in the infirmary at Whiteville school. Virginia Sego 
and Arden Blake Brinson are doing Public Health 
work here. Jeannine Andrews is head nurse on 
South Wing I and Joyce Philemon Holder is doing 
office nursing. Dot Troit is head nurse of the Nurs- 
ery. 

You know that Bunny and Rachel are working 
in surgery at James Walker — the same happy pair. 
The only change is that Bunny is now Mrs. Allen 
Lanier. Hermine Dosher is at a Pacific base hospital 
where Clyde is stationed near by. Marvaneen Ward 
and Wilma Singletary are Lieutenants in the Navy, 
sailing the high seas somewhere. 

I was out at the Famous Club last night and who 
did I see dancing? None other than Dot and Lucky. 
They are happily married now and she has a time 





finding a baby siiier everyiime she wants to go 
dancing 

Remember ihe Class President, Marie Moore? 
She's Director of Nurses at a Greenville hospital and 
Helen Daniels is 11-7 special on Lower Hall. A favo- 
rite floor of hers since she spent so much of time in 
training there. Mikki Winborne is at the Sampson 
County Hospital working on Children's Ward. 

Guess who is doing Private Duty at J. W. M. H. 
between caring for a family of four — Mrs. Ruby 
Butler Carter. 

I guess you heard that Enes Chadwick and 
Grace Fussell are next door neighbors out at Lake 
Forest. I think they are planning a trip to Florida 
soon. A. D. and Louis have their time off but you 
know how hard it is to get lime off at James Walker! 
They are doing General Duty on Upper Hall. 

Glorius Jacobs is home on vacation. She is work- 
ing at ihe Veterans Hospital in Fayetteville. Mary 
Ellen Blalock likes the Port City so well that she just 
couldn't leave, so she's doing 3-11 on Maternity. Dot 
Murphy Batson is an O. B. patient now with a little 
Marson, Jr. 

My goodness, it's almost two o'clock and I've got 
to go on duly at three on Maternity. I hear Jimmie, 
Jr., crying so I'll say goodbye now. I'll see you 
around.

CHIEF OF STAFF 



TO OUR DOCTORS 

We could not close this edition of 
the Epitome, without pausing to ex- 
press deep gratitude to our doctors. 
It is through their help at all times 
and their constant patience that these 
three years have been more pleasant. 

May their devotion to our profession 
be forever a guidance to us. You, 
who have so graciously helped us 
to be better nurses will be in our 
hearts forever. .

The members of the Senior Class join with the 
Epitome Staff in sincere appreciation to those adver- 
tisers and to our doctors who have helped make this 
annual a reality. 

A word of thanks is due to Garey-Mintz Print- 
ing Company and the Charlotte Engraving Company 
for helping us meet our deadline. Acknowledgment 
goes to our photographers, Mr. Scott, of Adams Studio, 
and student photographers who have made our pic- 
tures. 

This is your 1951 yearbook, which has been a 
bit of a struggle. Consider it a synopsis of your three 
years at James Walker, and please like it!
