Welcome to the UConn School of Nursing Dolan Collection

Over the nearly three-quarters of a century of its history, the UConn School of Nursing has preserved the legacy of nursing’s history with a body of artifacts, documents, and ephemera collected by nurse historians Josephine Dolan and Eleanor Krohn Herrmann, co-curated by Mary Ann Cordeau and Jennifer Casavant Telford, as well as donations by alumni and other benefactors. The collection is available for UConn faculty for instruction and for global scholars for research.
