Linda Kay Tanner Strodtman papers, 1966-1992

7 linear feet

Assistant professor of nursing and clinical nurse specialist at the University of Michigan. Subject files relating to her professional activities; and photographs.

The papers of Linda Strodtman relate primarily to her work with diabetic patients at the University of Michigan Hospitals and to her more general involvement with Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) during the years, 1970-1985. There is scant material on Strodtman's personal life. There are few documents in the collection relating to her research and teaching duties.

What the collection does document is Strodtman's work with diabetic patients, her involvement with the Michigan Diabetes Research and Training Center (MDRTC) and Diabetes Center Unit (DCU), and her activities as a CNS. The arrangement of the papers represents a blend of Strodtman's original order and description and series ordered by the processors. While this hybrid arrangement seeks to highlight aspects of her career, the researcher should note that series divisions are not absolute; some materials in the CNS series may relate to the MDRTC and vice versa.

The researcher is advised to be flexible and persistent in using the Strodtman collection; related materials are in separate and distinct areas of the collection. Furthermore, materials related to the MDRTC, the DCU, and nursing in general can be found in other collections held by the Bentley Library: The Diabetes Research and Training Center, School of Nursing, and Medical-Surgical Nursing Area collections all contain related materials.

The papers are organized into fourteen series:

  1. Correspondence, 1970-1985;
  2. Self-Evaluations, Progress Data, and Logs, 1970-1983;
  3. Michigan Diabetes Research and Training Center (MDRTC), 1976-1986;
  4. Diabetes Center Unit (DCU), 1975-1983
  5. University of Michigan Hospitals, Early Diabetes Program, 1970-1976;

Medical-Surgical Nursing Area (University of Michigan) records, 1960-1990

17 linear feet

The records of the University of Michigan Medical-Surgical Nursing Area contain the records for the Medical-Surgical Area and the records of the School of Nursing for the years 1960 to 1990. The records contain committee minutes and administrative documents from Medical-Surgical Nursing Area Chairpersons and the Undergraduate Program Coordinators.

The records of the Medical-Surgical Area measure 17 linear feet. The collection dates from 1960 to 1990, although most of the 1960-1975 material pertains only to the Area's graduate program. The poor order in which the records were received necessitated the imposition of an artificial arrangement, except in selected instances. Moreover, many of the meeting and committee minutes series are missing one or more sets of minutes per year. Reflecting the nature of the material, the collection has been divided into three subgrouping: the records of the Medical-Surgical Area, the records of the School of Nursing, and papers of individual faculty and staff members. The School of Nursing subgroup contains those records collected by the Area which pertain to the School as a whole, rather than to the Area in particular. It is expected that these files will be gradually reduced or eliminated when the University Archives accessions the records of the School of Nursing for those relevant years.

Later accessions include continuations of files from earlier accessions and papers of faculty members Arleen Hegedus, 1973-1985 and Josephine Sana, 1978-1981. The Hegedus materials run two linear feet and fall into two broad subseries, course materials and topical files. The Sana materials consists of a small topical file which seems complementary to the Hegedus topical file.
