Abstract: Parks (No. 8619) states, “Black church. Includes historical sketch.”             “To each of you that share the experience of this book, join with us in reflections, revelations and rejuvenation.   In this ninetieth year of existence, we have arrived at a new land of promise, a new home, a new page of history. It is our hope that this new station for God’s healing will provide for our community a resource for service and a bulwark of truth.   Share with our congregation our legacies and hopes that this journal committee has so aptly prepared.”   Reverend Robert W. Perry, p. (2).                           “The Purpose of this ‘Booklet’ is to trace graphically and in words the significant events in the growth and development of Union Baptist Church.   The history of our race is still being written, and the church has played, and is playing a very vital part in that history.   We have tried to express herein the philosophy of our inspired leadership; a leadership that gave birth to a broad concept of the spiritual, and social obligations of the Church of God. We also have tried to indicate with a reasonable degree of fidelity and gratitude, how a vast majority of our great membership caught the spirit and made it possible for all hands working under divine inspiration to forge this dream into tangible realities.   We, the members of the committee, commend this modest piece of work to the members of Union Baptist Church. It is our wish and prayer that it will prove to be a satisfactory expression of your ideas.   We also hope that it will be read with the same empathic understanding, that guided us through the many days of work, days of fears, some gladness and some sadness, but our labor has been a fruitful one.   We deeply appreciate the cooperation received directly and indirectly from the congregation; and in addition, would like to express our gratitude to the friends in the community who supported this effort.”   Nina W. Daniels, Chairperson, p. (1).   (Reproduced with permission.)

Abstract: “This book is dedicated to the 953 graduates of The Stamford Hospital School of Nursing whose lives were motivated towards the alleviation of human suffering. Through their compassion, learned skills and devotion to duty, they have helped to make Nursing the noble profession it is today.” Marie Updegraff, Dedication on reverse of title page.                                                                                                                             “This book has been written to commemorate 75 years of nursing education at The Stamford Hospital and the contribution of the 953 graduate nurses to this Hospital and to the many communities they have served. It provides an opportunity for all of us to look back and reflect on the hard work of becoming a nurse as well as the many good times shared as students.   As nursing education has engaged in a continuous process of growth and change, we now look ahead to a collegiate base rather than a hospital base setting for nursing education.   The School will be closing at the end of this 75 years. We look to the future with the knowledge that we can be proud of its heritage, its students and its faculty – a heritage which will live on in the memories of all those who have been touched in any way by The Stamford Hospital School of Nursing.” Patricia Szczech, p. (i).   (Copyright 1976 by the Stamford Hospital. Reproduced with permission.)
