This image of a class of nursing students and their two instructors demonstrates Gifford's skill at using natural light when working outside his own studio. The sheer curtains soften the light and even the stark walls of the hospital.

Identified on the original photo are Flo Bauer (in the center) and Irene Doyle (2nd row, 2nd from left). They were two of seven who graduated in 1919, so this photo likely shows all the students in the school at that time. The Dalles General Hospital operated its nursing school from 1900 until 1950.
