MARGUERITE BUTLER LETTERS 1914-1970 GUIDE provides a list of links to pages for each year of letters written by Marguerite Butler. Miss Butler served as a teacher, housemother, superintendent of extension work, and fundraiser at PMSS from 1914 through 1922. She was also a respected scholar of folk music and dance. In 1925, she began working with Dame Olive Campbell to co-found the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina.
Miss Butler’s letters were written primarily to members of her family while she was working at Pine Mountain Settlement School. In 1969 and 1970 her letters were addressed to the Director, Burton Rogers, and his wife, Mary Rogers, long after she had left Pine Mountain.
