Collection Scope and Content Note

Dr. Abdellah's papers reflect the breadth of her personal and professional interests. The material is divided into five series. There is limited personal and biographical information. There are two series of copies of her publications and speeches. They document Abdellah's research interests in patient care, nursing practice, nursing research, and the care of the elderly. Correspondence about some of the speeches and publications, as well as reviews of and advertisements for her books are also found in the series. A series composed of Abdellah's scrapbooks document fully her professional development, activities, and awards. Of special note is the last series, an extensive collection of photographs that serve as a visual record of federal nursing service and the Public Health Service in the 1970s and 1980s.
