Bonnie Bullough was a nursing teacher,
administrator, researcher, and author. The
documents her work in those fields, particularly her investigation
of job worth (attaching value to nursing jobs) and cross dressing. There is also a
significant amount of material related to the development and use of a new
"improved perineometer" for the treatment of stress incontinence.
Bonnie Bullough's childhood can appropriately be called tumultuous. Having never
met her biological father, she was shunted from relative to relative for her first few
years. Shortly before her 4th birthday, while living with
her mother, she was badly burned. After 1935, she had access to corrective surgery and
spent several summers in the local children’s hospital. The family moved to Salt Lake
City as she was entering junior high school. Shortly thereafter, her mother abandoned
the family to live in a committed relationship with another woman. Her step-father took
his biological children but he left Bonnie to be adopted by an uncle.
