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.
