Abstract Doris Wagner Ferguson, MS, RN, FAAN, an original member of the journal of Public Health Nursing editorial board, is now retired in Oklahoma after a 50-year career in public health nursing. She has been a staff nurse, an administrator, and an educator in several states and, in each instance, was instrumental in effecting change and improvement for the practice of her specialty. Her story informs us of earlier struggles and challenges, which we may take for granted today. Those of us currently working in public health nursing acknowledge that we stand on the shoulders of nurses like Doris Wagner Ferguson.
