Throwback Thursday: special delivery

Ten years ago, in our September/October 2004 issue, we profiled School of Nursing professor and midwifery pioneer Helen Varney Burst ’63MSN, which occasioned this memorable portrait by photographer Mark Ostow. Varney Burst is now a professor emeritus; the fifth edition of her authoritative textbook Varney’s Midwifery was published in 2013.
