Before there was Alfred...before there was George...before there was Gladys...there was Lorena Aina Beck...student nurse.
Lorena studied at the Burnett Sanitarium in Fresno, California. She graduated on January 3, 1922.

Really not sure about this building, but I believe it is where the student nurses lived.
Of course there was a lot of studying... (I have 7 of Lorena's notebooks.)
and there were field trips...
and there were friendships...
and there were the joys of work...
and there were hijinks! (click on any image to see it larger)
And in the end, there was Nurse Lorena Aina Beck.
