Posted: 3/9/2009

The Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions is preserving the professional accomplishments of Dr. Victoria (Vicki) Mock, RN, PhD, FAAN, (1942-2007) an internationally known oncology nursing researcher and leading faculty member at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.   The Archives is the official archival repository of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Mock's prestigious career included serving as a faculty member at Georgetown University, Boston University, Boston College, and most recently as professor at JHUSON and director of Oncology Nursing Research at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital.   She also chaired the Nursing Research Committee at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.   Mock served on a number of preeminent boards, committees, and task forces throughout her career, including serving as chair of the Oncology Nursing Societys Research Advisory Panel, chair of the U.S. Department of Defense TriService Nursing Research Program, and reviewer for the NIH Center for Scientific Review.  At JHUSON, Mock was Director of the Center for Nursing Research, Director of the Center for Collaborative Interventions Research, and Director of the China doctoral program partnership between Peking Union Medical College School of Nursing in Beijing and JHUSON.  Her final position was as founding Chair in the Department of Health Systems and Outcomes.   In addition to teaching and publishing dozens of peer-reviewed research articles, Mock also received many honors throughout her career, including receiving the Excellence in Cancer Nursing Research Award of the Oncology Nursing Society Foundation, and serving as president of the Alpha Chi Chapter, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.

The Archives is seeking materials from the academic and nursing practice communities to include in an archival collection and web exhibit honoring the legacy of Mock. This call to action to the nursing community seeks to expand the materials already received from many of Mock's colleagues, students, and friends from around the world. 

In developing a collection that represents Mock's entire career, the Archives is seeking materials, in particular, from her career prior to joining Johns Hopkins.  Colleagues are encouraged to submit materials that include (electronic or paper):

Records of Administration Activities (reports written in an administrative role);
Records of teaching activities;
Correspondence and scrapbooks;
Photographs and film;
Oral histories: brief statements by people who worked with Dr. Mock.
