Description

Under the supervision of the resident Cottage Director, each student living at the Home Ec Cottage at Farmington State Teacher College was the designated baby nurse for two weeks.

For many girls, this was their first experience caring for a baby, and they found it very challenging - especially those 5 a.m. feedings!
