Nurses in Knoxville, 1921-1930

The table below contains the names of women listed as nurses in Knoxville City Directories between the years 1921 and 1930, inclusive.

Beginning in 1922, the City Directory professional listing was identified as “Registered” Nurses.

This listing probably came from the Nurses’ Registry, since the names appeared in the businesses, trades, and professionals advertisement section.  The listing does not contain every practicing nurse in Knoxville during the time period.

Many of the early nurses in Knoxville were not graduates of KGH School of Nursing.

Please note in the table, (c) to indicate non-white individuals was transcribed as it appeared in the City Directories.
