Central Midlands District Nurses Association (4) records, 1927; 1937; 1949-1985

Identifier: Sub-subseries 3.

Scope and Content of the Subseries

From the Sub-Series: The subseries includes records of the redistricting process, and records of four of the ten new districts that started up on January 1, 1971 (the new districts were designated by names as well as numbers). Records are most extensive for Central Midlands District (4), based in Columbia. Files of these districts include limited records from their geographic predecessors: Central Midland District files include records from District III; Lower Savannah District, from District VIII; and Trident District, from District I.

District reorganization file and Appalachia District records were filed with the records in subseries A. Central Midlands District, Lower Savannah District, and Trident District donated their records separately. Note that Trident District Nurses Association records are shelved in a separate location form the bulk of the SCNA records.

The subseries includes records of the following districts (original geographical area indicated in brackets):

  • District reorganization file, 1968-1970
  • Appalachia District Nurses Association (1) records, 1970-1972 [Greenville, Pickens, Anderson, and Oconee counties]

  • Lower Savannah District Nurses Association (5) records, 1967; 1970-1975; 1978 [Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, and Orangeburg counties.
