The holiday runs from 6-12 May, so this week's photo is of an unnamed nurse:
The only clue I have to her identity is the studio inscription on the mounting: "Heath, Phoenix." I found a website on historic photography that indicates this studio probably operated between 1850 and 1920, so that at least helps narrow down the period.
Whoever she is, I'm sure she helped a lot of people during her career. As always, if you have any clues to offer, the comments are below, or you can email me at callintad at gmail dot com.

WTHAT = "Who the Heck Are They?" These are pictures that I have in my physical possession whose subjects are unknown to me. I'm hoping the Internet will recognize them, and maybe someone will let me know who they are.
GBOH = "Great Beards of History!" As a proud beard owner, I love finding examples of stunning facial hair in the family. Yes, somethimes, I will use this to share amazing moustaches, as well.
