This black and white photograph shows a Santa Fe courier nurse attending to passengers. 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 travelers. During their cross county travels the nurses, also, assisted with administrative duties and errands that required attention.
