The Scrapbook Before 1929 is an eclectic aggregate of newspaper clippings, clipped journal articles, photographs, letters, notes, calendars, etc., and was assembled by Pine Mountain Settlement School staff and administrators in the School’s earliest years. It serves as a record of their interests. The Scrapbook Before 1929 also captures the context in which the school evolved during the years from 1913 to the end of 1929.
A second Scrapbook From 1930 was also compiled but due to copyright restrictions. much of the content of this second scrapbook cannot be reproduced in full. This second scrapbook was maintained until the end of the 1950s and was then replaced by clipping files that continue to be collected.
