[Fragment of unfinished autobiography - Rockefeller Unit] Johns, Ethel


Fragment of Ethel Johns' unfinished autobiography, describing her experiences with the Rockefeller Foundation. In 1925 the Foundation invited Johns to become a member of the European field staff, to serve in an advisory capacity in a programme to develop schools of nursing there. Before leaving for Europe, Miss Johns carried out a special assignment: a survey of nursing education for negro women in the United States. She then went to Europe as a field director, working in Paris, London, and Vienna, and assisting in the development of nursing schools in Hungary and Romania.
The piece is heavily annotated and fragmentary.
