102 and She’s a Writer

            Dorothy Moriarty is Britain’s oldest writer. She is 102 years old and has just written her first book, The memoirs of a Nurse. In it she describes her life as a nurse at University College Hospital, London, in early part of this century. At that time civilian hospitals had very little money. They were dirty and nurses worked seventy hours a week and earned 8& a year. Dorothy says, “There were cockroaches everywhere. Nobody worried about our hospitals. All the money went to the military hospitals, and the newspapers were full of stories of Florence Nightingale and her soldiers. We decided to do something. We started the Royal College for Nursing and cut our working week from seventy to forty-eight hours. This was much better.”

            After the First World War, Dorothy went to work in Egypt, where she met her husband, Oliver. They married, but her family life wasn’t always happy. Oliver had a drink problem and finally died. “I’ve had a difficult life, but it’s been very interesting, and I’ve always had the love of my children and grandchildren.”

            Dorothy has started planning her next book. She says that with her long life she has lots of ideas!
