fore-edge of front board abraded, edge wear to jacket and boards, scuffing to jacket; This is the story of Sister Stanislaus, a rare human being, a dynamo of a woman, a nurse who devoted her life, joyfully, humorously, expertly, uniquely, to others. Orphaned at 3, brought up by the Sisters of Charity in Nevada, a nun herself at 20, Sister Stanislaus, after several months of nurses' training in Baltimore, was sent to work in New Orleans. She never really left. She spent over fifty years there. When she arrived, Charity Hospital comprised one antiquated building; modern medicine was in its swaddling clothes; nursing was an even more hit-or-miss affair. When she left, Charity Hospital was one of the finest in the land and nursing had become a highly professional career.
