Interview Summary

Anne Mulhauser went to the FNS as a courier in 1935, her mother being on the FNS Board of Governors. Mulhauser tells of her duties and of local attitudes toward the couriers. She speaks of Mary Breckinridge as being very protective of the nurses and the couriers, at times declaring the river too high to be crossed on horseback and limiting activity after dark. In discussing the local people, Mulhauser remarks upon the closeness between parents and children and comments upon the care most children received at home. She talks a bit about "granny" midwives and how Mary Breckinridge managed to convince them to let the nurse-midwives practice in their area. Recent FNS administration is reviewed, and changes in FNS operations are noted. Mulhauser also mentions some Cincinnati contributors to the FNS.
