Biographical/Historical note

Melvin R. Gibson was a member of the Coordinating Administrative Council on Nursing, Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education (ICNE), Spokane, Washington.

Upon its opening it was the first nursing consortium in the United States.

The first group of junior level students was accepted into the Center in fall of 1969. This first class was composed of 33 students, 20 from Washington State University, 12 from Eastern Washington State College, and 1 from Whitworth College.
