One of the Antarctic explorer’s adoring eight sisters, Eleanor shared more than initials with her famous brother.  Training as a paediatric nurse and midwife at the beginning of the 20th century, the story of her long career shows the extent of her humanity, concern for others under her care and endurance in difficult circumstances.
