Staupers, Mabel (Keaton)
orig. Mabel Doyle

born Feb. 27, 1890, Barbados, West Indies
died Nov. 29, 1989, Washington, D.C., U.S

Caribbean-born U.S. nurse and executive.

She joined two physicians to establish the first hospital in Harlem to treat U.S. blacks with tuberculosis (1920). As executive secretary of the National Association of Colored Graduate Nurses (NACGN), she campaigned to integrate the Armed Forces Nurse Corps; overwhelming public support led to full integration in 1945, and in 1948 NACGN succeeded in integrating the American Nurses Association.
