VI FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS: BX 37 – Creech Family

Pine Mountain Settlement School
Series: PHOTOGRAPHS 
Friends & Neighbors – Creech Family
Box 37 [Berea College inventory – Series VI]

The Friends and Neighbors series is listed as Series VI in the  Berea Guide to the Pine Mountain Settlement School Records, Part B.  The photographs are an aggregation of images taken from many sources and thematically grouped by Mary Rogers.  In this particular large series VI, there are, according to the Berea record, 563  “mounted” images.  The “mounting” is largely on construction paper with heavy glue and many of the images are beginning to show signs of migration through to the emulsion side of the photograph.  For this reason, it makes good sense to attempt to preserve the images through digital means.  Contact prints were made at the time the collection was cataloged by Berea College, but many of these are of poor quality.

This large series has been thematically grouped into a set.  This particular set is.# 37-1 Not all photographs on the mounted pages have been duplicated in the Berea set. The set as reproduced here includes images omitted from the Berea set.

The Friends and Neighbors series dates largely from 1913, the founding date of the school, through the 1940s.  There is some attempt to range the images according to date, but many of the images are undated and determining the exact dates is not possible unless recorded in association with the image.
