Historical Sketch

As early as 1968 Anita Dorr R. N., Emergency Room Supervisor at E. J. Meyer Memorial Hospital (now Erie County Medical Center), began identifying specific needs of emergency room nurses and planning with other nurses in the Buffalo, New York area, a formal emergency room nurses organization. Her vision was to provide continuing education and a united voice. Nurse Dorr was a graduate of the Edward J. Meyer Memorial School of Nursing in Buffalo, New York. She joined the Army Nurse Corps during World War II where she was promoted to the rank of Major. She saw action in major campaigns in Africa. In the 1960s, she served as supervisor of admissions and emergency department at Edward J. Meyer Memorial Hospital. Her contributions in emergency nursing were widely recognized. She served on the New York State Technical Advisory Board on Emergency Nursing and had been invited to serve on the United States Public Health Bureau of Emergency Services.

Dorr is also attributed with the 1967 invention of what was then called the “Crises Cart” or what is now called, the Emergency Room “Crash Cart.”  Through corresponding and meeting with other E. R. nurses from all over the country she supplied the impetus which became the Emergency Room Nurses Association in 1970. Initially, she called her organization the Emergency Room National Organization (E.R.NO.). Her official title was Chairman of the Emergency Department Nurses Association. Her advisory committee consisted of Dr. George Anast, Dr. David Kluge, Dr. Robert Wilbee and Odry I. Erickson, R. N.

Judy Kelleher launched a similar front for emergency nurses on the West Coast in May of 1970. Kelleher felt that the organization should be called Emergency Department Nurses Association (E.D.N.A.). Kelleher’s fledgling organization contained the following leadership: the Steering Committee consisted of Judy Kelleher, Hope McCrum, Eileen Farrell, Cathy Griffith, Althea Kennedy, Monica Reiss and Vivienne Thomas. The Advisory Committee consisted of Dr. William Stryker, Dr. Howell Wiggins, Dr. J. Cuthbert Owens, Dr. John Abbey, and Dr. Vern Nickel. Two other nurses who helped a great deal in the early days were Avice Kerr and Florence Weiner. On December 1, 1970 the two nurses from opposite coasts got together and combined the two organizations. The two agreed that the organization should officially be called The Emergency Department Nurses Association. Their first meeting was New York in 1971.

In October of 1972, Anita Dorr, R.N., succumbed to lung cancer and Ruth Miller became the Executive Director of E.D.N.A. Judy Kelleher was the first person to be elected president. The national organization was divided into eleven regions including Canada. Each region has a representative and there are many local chapters within a region.

In 1985, the Association’s name was changed to Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), recognizing their profession as role-specific rather than site-specific. In 2005 the Emergency Nurses Association celebrated their 35th Anniversary.

(For more historical information see folder 20 of Box 1 or folder 6 or Box 2.  This brief synopsis of Emergency Nurses Association and biographical information about Anita Dorr R.N. was taken from information gathered there.)
