Margaret Gilmour Steltmann, Class of 1942, Attends Today's College of Nursing's 100th Anniversary Alumni Reunion Luncheon


Alumni MargaretMany of us today have but a history-class, cursory view of the events of one of the most eventful times in world annals: the year 1942.

Yet one of the oldest attendees at today's Alumni Reunion Luncheon lived through it, up close and personal.

Margaret Gilmour Steltmann, now in her early 90s, traveled with her daughter today from their home in Johnstown, New York, to be part of the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing's 100th anniversary Homecoming Weekend.

Margaret is a member of the Class of 1942. During her career as a nurse she worked at Oswego Hospital and Albany Medical Center.


It's hard to imagine graduating and going out into the world as a nursing graduate at that time in American history. But Margarret did it... she had a career, married and raised a family. And today she was here to celebrate the 100th anniversary as part of the far-reaching Crouse family.

We're proud of you, Margaret, and of the many generations of Crouse nursing graduates who've touched lives and changed the world, one patient at a time, here in the Central New York community and beyond.
