School of Nursing Class of 1935 Group Photo


Tom Minton

Elise Fletcher Boddie was my grandmother, and my best friend as a child. I was missing her and decided to Google her name. I am still excited to have found this picture! She was always so proud to have been a nurse trained at Vanderbilt.

I'm with you Tom. Just found my grandmother too. Frances Kloepfer Nelson. It is hard to imagine her being a student at Vandy. I grew up living just a short run through the woods away from Grandma Frances. She helped make my childhood a wonderful and magical experience. I miss her so much.

This building was named the "School of Nursing Building” until 1934, when it was renamed “Mary Kirkland Hall.” In 1958, the building was renamed “Mary Henderson Hall,” and the name changed once again in 1971 to “Mary Ragland Godchaux Hall.”
