Nightingale Letter

The Augustus C. Long Health Sciences Library’s Archives & Special Collections is pleased to announce that the Florence Nightingale letters in its Auchincloss Florence Nightingale Collection are now available digitally through the Florence Nightingale Digitization Project.  Columbia’s 252 Nightingale letters now join over 2,000 digitized other letters written by her.  Among the Project’s international group of contributing institutions are Boston University, the National Library of Medicine, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Illinois in the U.S., and the Wellcome Library, the Florence Nightingale Museum, and the Royal College of Nursing in the U.K., among others.  The project is led and supported by Boston University’s Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.
