After obtaining her State Registration for Nursing at University College Hospital, London, circumstances took Jenny Main to Elgin, Moray, where she worked for many years in Dr. Gray’s hospital, Elgin. After injury forced her retirement, she became interested in local history and her District Nursing Officer suggested she write a short pamphlet about the unknown and unsung local celebrity, Ethel Fenwick. Of necessity, a pamphlet evolved into a small book! However, in 2002 a severe flood event in Elgin disrupted the final editing; the book was published locally, but felt unfinished. Since then, Jenny has written several local history books and was encouraged by nursing colleagues and members of the Ethel Gordon Fenwick Commemorative Project to revise and to introduce Ethel, her life, her times and her achievements to a much wider public at a time when the importance of the nursing profession is appreciated more than ever.
