Eleanor "Ellie" Oakes was interviewed on November 8, 2005 by Karen Brewster in the Kawerak Corporation building's conference room in Nome, Alaska. Eleanor is a private person who had to be strongly persuaded to do this interview, so she has chosen not to make it available on the Internet. In this interview, she talks about coming to Alaska, her early nursing jobs, what conditions were like at the Nome hospital, the duties of a public health nurse, and how she has seen rural health care change over the years. This interview is only available at the Oral History Program, Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks. Please contact Robyn Russell at (907) 474-6773 or to obtain a copy of the recording.
