The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale comprises all the surviving writing of Florence Nightingale, featuring original material from over 150 archives and private collections worldwide. Known as the heroine of the Crimean War and the major founder of the modern profession of nursing, Florence Nightingale (1820—1910) is affirmed also as a scholar, theorist, and social reformer of enormous scope and importance. This series demonstrates her astute use of the political process; reports on her extensive correspondence with royalty, viceroys, cabinet ministers, and international leaders; and contains a great deal of previously unpublished material – Florence Nightingale is revealed as so much more than the “lady with the lamp.”

She is a former member of parliament, a former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, and a long-time activist on women’s issues.
