What do Florence Nightingale, Jane Addams, Anna Freud and Edith Hamilton have in common?They were all lesbians.At least that's what Sacramento, Calif., journalist Dell Richards says."They were all great gay women who made great contributions to our society," says Ms. Richards. "Only they are not recognized gay by historians. They [historians] want to gloss over that part because they either find it distasteful or they think it doesn't matter. But being gay made these women who they are."I want to set the record straight," Ms. Richards says as she leans forward on the forest green couch, and mischievously adds, "so to speak.

If there's a holiday party for patients at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Perry Point, Dee Jones makes sure there is song. And for the past few months, Jones, a nurse and care coordinator at the hospital, has added a tribute to her repertoire: "The Nurses' Anthem," which she wrote to honor all who share her dedication to the profession. The Havre de Grace resident has been singing for crowds since she was 7 and nursing at the 400-bed military hospital on the banks of the Susquehanna River for the past 10 years.

On Sunday, the world will recognize extraordinary human achievement with the awarding of six Nobel Prizes, including the 2006 Prize in Physiology or Medicine. No nurse has ever won. That is appropriate, because nursing, while closely related to medicine, is a distinct health science. However, there is no Nobel Prize or comparable annual award (such as a Templeton Prize or a Fields Medal) in nursing. There should be. Nurses deserve such international recognition. Alfred Nobel's will provided for prizes in Physics; Chemistry; Physiology or Medicine; Literature; and what we now call the Peace Prize.

It was a different era of health care reform when the Visiting Nurse Association of Baltimore was founded in 1895. And against what is happening in today's medical marketplace, the VNA may have outlived its usefulness.Nursing 100 years ago had become a profession -- training schools for it had opened 40 years earlier, thanks to Florence Nightingale -- and there was great social foment, partly a rebellion from the rigid social rules of the Victorian era. It produced a movement to help care for the sick and the poor.

Birth ControlEditor: A recent Sun editorial ("Birth Control in City Schools," -- Nov. 21) stated, "Many favor urging abstinence -- sound advice, but inadequate without information on protection."This editorial ignores and obscures the fact that abstinence education is advice on protection. In fact, abstinence is the only sure, dependable protection against AIDS, other venereal diseases and premature pregnancy.It seems ironic that during a time when a sexually transmitted plague is spreading through the populations of the world, the public schools still teach early sex education which instructs children in human sexual reproductive technique.

Roland Park resident Kathy Hudson remembers how much rejection can sting a young writer or artist, so when some neighborhood children received "no thank you" notes from Highlights and other mainstream magazines, she decided to start her own in-house newsletter for children.With 200 subscriptions in 25 states, the homemade Hudson Monthly, with a stenciled nameplate, is hardly a mass-media publication. But it does have a distinction few others can claim: It never sends rejection letters.Hudson puts everything -- postcards from Walt Disney World, holiday family snapshots, essays on such famous figures as Florence Nightingale -- that arrives in her mailbox into the six-page photocopied Monthly, so no aspiring authors get discouraged when they are young.

British newspaper readers were appalled when The Times reported that no preparations had been made by the army to deal with wounded soldiers. That was in 1854, during the Crimean War against Russia. A century and a half later, newspaper readers are still being appalled by the state of military medicine. But what sets the Walter Reed scandal apart from the Crimean experience (which inspired the legendary nurse Florence Nightingale to take matters into her own capable hands) is that four years have passed since the war in Iraq began.

In 1949, almost on a whim, Esther McCready requested an application from an all-white nursing school. That began a court battle that lasted more than a year, enlisted the talents of a young attorney named Thurgood Marshall, and integrated the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore. The hard-won letter that McCready received admitting her to the class of 1953 and the Florence Nightingale cap -- or "Flossie" -- that she later earned are on display at the Lewis Museum. At the time, Provident Hospital in Baltimore had a nursing program that accepted black students.
