Comments: Louise Perry (Nee: ) | Portland ME | 1921-1940 | Comments: (Probably) Louise Millicent Perry, Nurse, circa 1934.
This photo is from the Ethel Wight Studio, Portland, Maine.
The envelope this negative was in says, “Miss Louise Perry, Childrens Hospital #540.”
What I discovered about this to be the individual.
• The 1934, 1935, and 1936 Portland city directories list no nurses with a surname of Perry, Parrody, or anything similar.
• However, the 1931 Burlington, Vermont, city directory lists a Louise M Perry as nurse at Mary Fletcher Hospital.
• And the 1940 Census lists Louise M Perry as a 28-year-old, Vermont born, register nurse at the Nurses Home of Hartford in Hartford Connecticut. It indicates that she was in Brooklyn, New York, in 1935.
I believe this is probably Louise Millicent Perry, born 10 Jan 1912. In 1930 and 1931 the 18-year-old worked at the Mary Fletcher Hospital in Burlington, Vermont. About 1934, she was in Portland, Maine, where this photo was taken. In 1935 she in Brooklyn and by 1940 she had located to Hartford, Connecticut.
