Dorothy Blanche Smith (seated, far left), who went by Blanche, was a nurse in Saranac Lake in the early 1900s. Her mother, Mary Ellen Colon, was also a nurse, and her father, Charles H. Smith, worked as a guide.
We do not know a lot of information about Blanche, including where she studied. Do you know anything about Blanche, or recognize these nursing uniforms? Let us know!
