Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Bonnie Bullough was a nursing teacher, administrator, researcher, and author. The Bonnie Bullough Collection 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.
