Collection Description

Biographical Note

Pauline Brown Payne was born on May 12, 1925. She was a member of the Black Nurses Association of Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area as well as an administrator at the Homer G. Phillips School of Nursing in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Black Nurses Association was founded in 1971 after African American nurses caucused at the 47th annual American Nurses Association (ANA) in Miami, Florida, in 1970 to discuss uniting African American nurses to promote the inclusion of blacks in nursing education and nursing leadership positions. These discussions led to the first steering committee, chaired by Dr. Lauranne Sams, and in December 1971, the motion was passed that established the National Black Nurses Association (BNA). On September 6, 1972, in Canton, Ohio, Betty Jo Davison, Gloria M. Rookard and Doris A. Wilson signed the official Articles of Incorporation of the National Black Nurses Association, Inc.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of the papers of African American nursing school administrator Pauline Brown Payne and the records of the St. Louis chapter of the Black Nurses Association (BNA). The collection predominantly contains the records of the Black Nurses Association such as foundational materials, including by-laws, constitutions, articles of incorporation, and minutes and agendas for meetings of the group. There are also a number of photograph albums and scrapbooks relating to Ernestine B. Overby, an early member of the BNA. Payne's papers consist entirely of funeral programs Payne collected from the 1940s-2010s.
