Caption: Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) the English nurse and hospital reformer. The engraving shows her at Scutari, in the military hospital, directing the care of patients during the Crimean war. Her experiences there convinced her of the need to take a sanitarian approach to hospital design. Hitherto hospitals had actually encouraged the spread of disease through overcrowding, poor ventilation and bad drains. She publicized the miasma theory of disease while advocating light and airy hospitals with clean staff and good sanitary engineering. Engraving by Greatbach after J. Hind.
