The President’s New Nurse
Career of Miss McKenzie Who Has Just Gone to Buffalo.
After graduating she went to Baltimore and secured employment in the Kelly sanitarium. Having secured experience there, she became a private nurse and attended many cases in Baltimore and Washington. It was in Washington that she met Dr. Rixey, when she was nursing Mrs. Lyman J. Gage, wife of the Secretary of the Treasury, who died last year.
Miss McKenzie is not a Canadian by birth. Her parents are Scotch and she was born in that country. She has a sister Barbara, who is now a trained nurse in Hamilton, Ont. Miss Barbara was graduated from the Kensington Hospital a year later than Miss Grace.
