Rare Books and Special Collections Tour

Here is a photo of BCHNS members that visited the Rare Books and Special Collections at the UBC Library, guided by Archivist Krisztina Laszio, on June 21, 2018. Nan Martin in the foreground is viewing some of the Florence Nightingale letters.
Many of the letters are addressed to Nightingale while others are sent from her or involve other correspondents discussing Nightingale. The letters date from 1877 to 1965. A substantial portion of the collection was purchased from a Bostonian antiquarian book dealer in 1966 and 1967 by the Woodward Library. Online access to these digitized letters can be found at https:///open.library.ubc.ca/collections/florence
