The Nursing Radicalism of the Honourable Albinia Brodrick, 1861–1955 P1: OSO/OVY P2: OSO/OVY QC: OSO/OVY T1: OSO SVNF004-05 SVNF004-v4 August 24, 2006 9:5 The Nursing Radicalism of the Honourable Albinia Brodrick, 1861–1955 Ann Wickham Dublin City University The Honourable Albinia Brodrick was born into the English aristocracy in 1861 but died a pauper in Ireland in 1955. During her lifetime, she moved from England to Ireland, changed her name from Albinia Brodrick to Gobnait Ni Bhruadair, and embraced Irish nationalist ideals that were in total opposition to the unionist political beliefs of her family. Throughout all these changes, this article argues, her life, work, and ideals were shaped by her embrace of the profession of nursing and her commitment to the rights of nurses. Her dedica- tion and energy helped shape nursing politics in Ireland in the early twentieth century. Brodrick was born on December 17, 1861, in Middlesex, England, to William Brodrick, Viscount Middleton, and his wife Augusta. She had the usual upbringing and activities of an aristocratic Protestant daughter, including at- tending concerts and balls at Buckingham Palace. She became familiar with politics as she accompanied her father on his visits to the House of Lords. She also accompanied him on visits to the family estates http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nursing History Review Springer Publishing
