ELIZABETH HENCH CORRESPONDENCE

Pine Mountain Settlement School
Series 09: Biography
Elizabeth Hench Letters

A collection of letters to and from Elizabeth Hench from Katherine Pettit, Ethel de Long and many from PMSS Secretary and teacher, Angela Melville.  The letters cover the period from 1916 through 1917 and largely concern fund-raising in the early years of the School.  The exchanges are candid and contain information on the efforts to find funding for the School and the difficult negotiation of all interests associated with funding and characterizing the School during the very early years.  As a trustee of the School, Elizabeth Hench was integrally involved in the day to day activities of the School and in securing much needed help and supplies to keep the fund-raising efforts effective.
