Jessie Groves thru the years

In 1915 Jessie Groves arrived in Indianapolis at the age of 21 to take a position as the Night Supervisor at Long Hospital on the campus of the fledgling Indiana University School of Medicine. She spent the rest of her nursing career at the IU Medical Center, retiring in the 1950s as the Operating Room Supervisor for both Long and Riley Hospitals. These candid photographs, most originally pasted in an album, were taken by Jessie over the course of her four decades at the Medical Center.
