The People's Hospital: A History of McCords, Durban, 1890s-1970s (2017)

unapi

Durban’s McCord Hospital, this book argues, is one of the most important hospitals of the twentieth century. Founded ‘for the Zulu’ in 1909 by American Christian missionaries, Dr James B. McCord and Margaret Mellen McCord, for more than a century it was a centre of affordable health care for the underprivileged of many faiths, cultures and political persuasions. It also pioneered the training of black nurses, midwives and doctors and was supported by prominent figures such as John L. Dube and Chief Albert Luthuli.
