About the Author

Delia Battles Lewis (1888-1959) was an Ohio native who earned her nursing degree at the Presbyterian Hospital's School of Nursing in New York (now the Columbia University School of Nursing). Following her medical mission service in Korea and her Red Cross work during World War I, she returned to Ohio and married William A. Lewis of Ashtabula; they had two children. She later returned to private nursing and remained a staunch advocate of the nursing profession throughout her life.

Reviews

"Charity begins at home, but it needn't end there--the proper sphere of Charity is the world." With these words, newly-graduated nurse Delia Battles embarked on the great adventure of her young life. What is remarkable to the reader is how much of her tale of war, refugees, foreign occupation, and finally, nursing tradition and education, still rings true today.--Denise M. Ferraro, M.S., R.N., F.N.P.-B.C.
