Notes about Access to this Collection
Historical or Biographical Note
With the departure of Dean Francis Helen Zeigler in 1949, Hereford was promoted to full professor and named Dean of the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. During her deanship (1949-1965), dramatic changes occurred in the nursing program, often in keeping with national trends, and, in some cases, breaking new ground for others to follow.
Hereford took two leaves of absence during her career (1958-1959, 1965-1968), during which she undertook doctoral studies in administration at the University of Chicago. She returned to Vanderbilt in 1968 as professor, and upon the completion of her Ph.D. in 1972, she assumed additional duties as the school's first director of academic advising. Hereford officially retired in 1977, but she remained active with Vanderbilt as an emeritus faculty member through the early 1980s.
