SEARCH AND RESCUE:

Dougherty, Florence. "Church Gains Heritage Status." Newsletter (BC History of Nursing Professional Practice Group) 5, no. 1 (March 1994): 2-3. The church which became famous to most of us through the note cards depicting the stained glass window of the WWI Nursing Sister received a 1994 Heritage award from Vancouver in recognition of its windows. Florence Dougherty represented the Nursing Sisters at the reception on February 21, 1994. In 1928, the nurses raised $350 to install the original window; in 1989, the Nursing Sisters gave the church $6,728 for restoration costs. Since then, through the sale of the note cards, an additional $5,400 has been raised and presented to the Canadian Nurses Foundation for scholarships.

Shore, Helen. "Shaughnessy Closures Threat to Lennie Sculptures." Newsletter (BC History of Nursing Professional Practice Group), (December 1993): 7. The Beatrice Lennie stone sculptures framing the Shaughnessy Hospital's entrance are endangered. One of these depicts a Nursing Sister encouraging a wounded soldier. With the closing of this hospital, local groups have asked that the art work be preserved. Helen Shore warns that "vigilance and prompt, concerted action" may be necessary.
