Abstract The Southern Division was one of several regional organizations formed from the American Nurses Association.

The Southern Division members wre Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Office files, 1929-1949, of the American Nurses Association, Southern Division. Included are letters, financial records, minutes, reports, and other materials. Most items relate to annual and biennial meetings and conferences. Reports from the member states about their activities are included for some years, sometimes as part of convention reports. Although most of the items are related to activities of the Southern Division, there is some information, particularly in papers collected as proceedings from conventions, on working conditions of nurses in member states, nursing education, rural nursing, public health nursing, and other issues. State reports from 1929 give detailed summaries of the activities of nurses' organizations in the member states up until that year.
