Santa Fe courier nurse

Meitz, Frank E.

This black and white photograph shows a Santa Fe courier nurse assisting two young girls from a streamliner at the Los Angeles Union terminal. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company assigned registered nurses, known as couriers, to their passenger trains from the 1930s to the 1960s to attend to the medical needs of passengers. During their cross country travels the nurses, also, assisted with certain administrative duties or errands that required attention.
