Historical or Biographical Note

Miss Brodie was well qualified. She was a graduate of Smith College, held a master's degree from Washington University, and was a member of the Vassar Training Camp for Nurses. Edith Brodie worked hard to improve nursing, changing the name from Vanderbilt Hospital Training School for Nurses to the School of Nursing of Vanderbilt University. Brodie was also pivotal in the field of nursing throughout the state, co-organizing the Tennessee League of Nursing Association. She remained at Vanderbilt until 1930.
