Lillian D. Wald - 1993

Lillian D. Wald In 1893, Lillian Wald established a "nurses' settlement, to provide nursing services to Manhattan's immigrant poor. Living in the neighborhood they served, these nurses functioned independently to provide care to the sick poor in their homes. Wald is credited with introducing the concept of school nursing, and was a founder of the National Organization for Public Health Nursing and the Children's Bureau. She traveled widely and her influence was international, yet Miss Wald remained a vital part of the neighborhood served by the Henry St. Settlement.
