The Mission of the Nursing Archives Associates is to support the History of Nursing Archives in the preservation of the working papers, correspondence, manuscripts, photographs and histories of important individuals, associations and organizations, both historical and contemporary, who are important in the nursing field, and in making these valuable, unique primary resources available to researchers. The History of Nursing Archives are a valuable part of the holdings of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.

The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University seeks to capture and document history by collecting the manuscripts from individuals who play significant roles in the fields of journalism, poetry, literature and criticism, dance, music, theater, film, television, and political and religious movements. The Center strives to preserve the documents and make them readily available to researchers while administering all legal copyrights and restrictions. The Center also presents extensive exhibitions, seminars and tours for students, parents, alumni, various visiting groups and members of the public. For more information, visit
