WPSU is traveling to towns across central and northern Pennsylvania to collect oral history recordings. In July, we stopped at the Clearfield County Historical Society’s William B. Alexander Research Center.

Eleanor Bodle graduated from the Clearfield School of Nursing in 1953. Today, she talks with fellow graduates Joan Myers, Doris Manos, and Rita Gill Thompson about their training and about living as students at the nurses home.
