DOROTHY BUCK

The late Dorothy Buck started as a nurse for the Frontier Nursing Service in January 1928 and, then at her own expense, went to England in September 1928 to take graduate training as a midwife. She returned to Kentucky in May 1929 and served as a “floater” and as a District Nurse at various outpost centers. Later, Ms. Buck was made First Assistant Director and Dean of the Frontier Graduate School of Midwifery and held these posts until her death in 1949. She is one of two nurse-midwives buried at Wendover.
