Dr. Marjorie Dunlap
Dr. Marjorie Dunlap of Windsor, CA, died on Monday, July 20 at the age of 91. She was formerly Dean of the University of Hawaii School of Nursing, and of the University of California San Francisco School of Nursing. She was named Professor Emerita when she retired from USCF in 1982. She was a nursing graduate of Barnes University in St. Louis, and earned a BA degree from the University of Missouri, an MPS from the University of Colorado, and an EdD from University of Southern California.
She worked for the World Health Organization in the summers of 1964 and 1965, developing continuing education programs for nurses. President Richard Nixon appointed her to the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services in 1968. Because post graduate education in nursing had not been available during her own education, she initiated postgraduate nursing programs that are still in place today.
Marjorie was a major supporter of WCHEN and WIN. She was on the WCHEN Executive Board from 1974 – 1978, and served as its chair from 1974 – 1977.
In her retirement, Marjorie played golf and card games, worked exquisite needlepoint and entertained her many friends. Her obituary noted that she was generous to a fault, unspoiled, gracious, and lit up the room with her presence. Donations may be made in Marjorie's memory to a Hospice group of choice or to the Humane Society.
