Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF
Practical experience was an important part of the Home Economics curriculum. Students learned about child care, including infants. The school nurse was a key part of providing students with these skills. This photo shows a group of students learning the proper way to bathe a "baby" under the watchful eye of Nurse Ingeborg Johansen, who was the school nurse from 1928 to 1945.
