Dorothy Harrington Hall

I joined the Corps when I entered the Massachusetts General Hospital School of Nursing in 1943 having graduated from high school.  After my graduation from MGH I spent 2 years at home caring for my mother who had terminal Cancer.  Following her death I did institutional nursing in the OR, head nursing in a couple of hospitals in NYC; Washington, DC; and Sarasota, Fl.  While in NYC I became  a student for a BS degree at New York University and then for my Master's Degree at Columbia University.  After that I became a Director of Nursing at a Public Health Nursing Agency in Massachusetts for 7 years before becoming a Public Health Nursing consultant for the Massachusetts State Department of Public Health and then finally the District Health Officer working with 67 local communities of the Northeast Region of the state to help them upgrade local services, also overseeing a regional staff of 35plus.  I retired in 1988 after 40 plus years in nursing, mostly in Public Health.  I am now widowed and enjoying a life of volunteerism with the local community, especially through our Senior Center.  I have also been involved in local town committees, etc., and enjoying my retirement doing a lot of travel at home and abroad.
