THE CLASS OF 1954
GEISINGER MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
The Moving Finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.
-Bubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
It is with this quotation in mind that the dedication
of the 1954 LAMPLIGHTER is written. The past is gone
and forgotten in all but a few exceptional instances and
so we look to the Future for what it holds and offers to
us, the graduate nurses of tomorrow. Not with fear
do we greet the dawn but instead we accept it as a
challenge to prove that there are still those remaining
who pledge themselves to aiding humanity in even the
most trivial manner. So it is, that we dedicate our-
selves, and this our memorial, to the Future and what-
ever it holds in store for us.
T0 common knowledge, a School of Nursing is
regarded as an institution in which young women pre-
pare themselves, through three years of concentrated
study in formal classes, ward Classes, and ward duty, to
care for the sick and needy and nurse them back to
To us, the members of the Class of 1954, Geisinger
means much more. It signifies a stepping stone to
greater horizons, which can be attained only through
consistent hard work and high Spirits. T0 cross this
stepping stone, we went through a series of doorways;
doorways of various sizes and shapes and leading to
rooms pleasant 0r nondescript in decor. Nevertheless,
each doorway assumed a significant role in our three
years here at Geisinger.
By taking you through these doorways, we hope to
impart to you, through the mediums of photography
and the printed word, the elusive and intangible quali-
ties which incorporate to form iithe Spirit of G. M. H."
