Friday August 28, 2015 6:30 p.m. – Zephyrettes and Courier Nurses

Lauren Giebler, member of the State Historic Review Board and former Colorado Railroad Museum Curator, will delve into the lives of Zephyrettes and Courier Nurses. After streamlining their rolling stock in the 1930s, railroad companies realized their trains also had to offer superior service to compete with automobiles. They hired female employees to make passengers as comfortable as possible. These women made announcements, took dinner reservations, sent passengers’ telegrams and letters, walked pets, played with children, provided minor medical care, and much more!
