This collection contains artifacts, biographical information, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photos, printed material, and research. These items were gathered by the Jacksonville, Florida artist Joanelle Mulrain, in preparation for and exhibition of her work honoring the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, on the 100 anniversary of her death. The seven original exhibit paintings, along with other rare items collected by Joanelle Mulrain, are on permanent display in The Brooks College of Health. The Art of Caritas, additional artwork created by Joanelle Mulrain to enhance the mosaic honoring Florence Nightingale, can be found in special collections.
