Miss Maud Mohan, Brockville, Nurse in Charge of
A Brockville, Ont., despatch [sic]
of last Saturday says:—“The fact that a Brockville young lady, Miss
Maud Mohan, is the nurse in charge of President McKinley, gives
the terrible tragedy even added interest. Miss Mohan only left here
yesterday at noon, after spending three weeks’ holidays. She would
reach Buffalo last night at 7.30. The fact that she has been selected
to fill that important position is an evidence that her ability
as a nurse is fully recognized in Buffalo. She graduated from the
Buffalo general hospital three years ago and has since been associated
with Dr. Roswell Park, one of the leading surgeons of the United
States, and one of those in attendance on the president. The following
telegram was received this morning by Mrs. Mohan, from her daughter:—
“BUFFALO, Sept. 7, 1901.
| ‘President resting quietly.
I am nurse in charge.
“When Miss Mohan reached Buffalo
that night a carriage was in waiting to convey her to the Milburn
residence, to which President McKinley had been removed. She is
intimately acquainted with Senator Milburn’s family, having nursed
his daughter through a very serious illness.”
