Nursing's first father and son
Herb Zinder remembers when he almost quit nursing school. In 1968 he had been the first man accepted into the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, and the challenges seemed insurmountable at times. Now, some 30 years later, Zinder is returning to Hopkins to watch his son, Matthew, graduate from the School of Nursing. On graduation day, Matthew and his dad will become the School of Nursing's first father/son alums.
   "Of course I am thrilled that Matthew is graduating from the School of Nursing," Zinder says. "I had always hoped that one of my children would go into the field."

The $59 million facility, to be named for both the Bunting family and the family of Jacob and Hilda Blaustein, is scheduled to open in January 2000 at the northwest corner of Broadway and Orleans Street on the JHMI campus in East Baltimore.

The Weinberg Building is scheduled to open in October. Full story...
