Maude Vaughan, Potlatch Forest, Inc., nurse at Headquarters, was the only person with an accredited medical training within many miles. Though she was a Potlatch employee, she treated pretty much everyone, including the children in the community. She said, she was never told her not to treat the children and she couldn't stand not doing it.
Mike Ward in a Lewiston Morning Tribune column spoke of her service as a nurse during World War II. Many in the town experienced her medical skill in various ways. He describes her as a no-nonsense lady with a 24 carat gold heart.
