On October 16th, 1940, seven nurse anesthetists met at the Wesley Hospital Nurse Home in Wichita to found the Kansas Association of Nurse Anesthetists
(KANA). Our first President was Viola Baker from Wichita. Viola served
as President until 1945. Velma Thompson of Marysville was elected first
vice-president. Ethel Paul of Wichita serves as second vice-president
and Mildred Clark of Fort Leavensworth became secretary/treasurer. Also
attending was Zella Hammann from McPherson.
