Sharon Deevey, a good friend and member of Cassandra:Radical Feminist Nurses Network in Cleveland, just notified me of the archive of Cassandra materials at the Medical Heritage Center, Prior Health Sciences Library, The Ohio State University 376 W. 10th Ave. Columbus, OH 43210. Here is a PDF that shows details of the collection!
Cassandra only existed as an active entity for about 8 years. We had 3 national gatherings and published a newsletter three times a year for 7 years! But the spirit of Cassandra persists in many forms! I co-authored an article with Elizabeth Berrey (also from the Cleveland Web) about Cassandra that was published in Sinister Wisdom in 2014, and you can also download all of the newsjournals from the Cassandra page on this website!
I shared this on FB: Rad nurses rejoice! Their important work is safely archived (well, as safely as any university archive can be) at the Medical Heritage Center, Prior Health Sciences Library, The Ohio State University. One of their noteworthy works is the powerful booklet titled “Witches, Midwives and Nurses: A History of Women Healers” by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. Thank you Peggy Chinn for sharing this happy news.
Thank you so very much! Peggy
