Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Doctor Mildred Burgess trained at the London School of Medicine for Women, graduating MD in 1905. She held various medical positions including Assistant School Medical Officer for the London County Council and Medical Officer for two London County Council institutions: Stockwell Training College and Ponton Road Place of Detention. She was also the Medical Officer for Cornwall Nursery Hostel and Brixton and Herne Hill Creche and a House Surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital. She gave lectures on nursing and child health and wrote on the subject, including her book "The care of Infants and Young Children in Health", 1913. Her interest in the training of nurses is evidenced by a letter to the British Journal of Medicine, 19 February 1916, in which she calls for better theoretical training before nurses entered wards.
