Interview Summary

Nancy Porter went to the FNS as a nurse in 1947. She recalls Christmas at Wendover and the preparation of clothing to be given away. Porter served in the hospital clinic and describes her work, as well as the hospital facilities at that time. Porter's contact with Wendover was minimal during this period since she had no midwifery training and did not go out on local visits. She talks a bit about hospital facilities and obstetrical care in Detroit and discusses the Detroit Committee of the FNS. Porter also comments upon the Quarterly Bulletin.
