Descriptive Summary

Creator: Patai, Frances
Title: Frances Patai Oral Histories on Women Medical Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War
Dates [inclusive]: 1985-1992
Abstract: Frances Patai was an educator, writer, historian and feminist activist. Born in New York in 1930, she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees at the City College of New York in the 1950s and taught English and Communication courses throughout the City University of New York (CUNY) system. Patai was deeply concerned with human rights issues, in particular the rights and status of women, and in the last decade of her life she devoted her efforts to researching and writing a book on U.S. women medical personnel who volunteered during the Spanish Civil War. The oral histories that make up this collection are part of her extensive research material. The Frances Patai Oral Histories on Women Medical Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War consist of interviews with volunteers from the Spanish Civil War, primarily the women who served as nurses.
