GUIDE TO KATHERINE PETTIT CORRESPONDENCE

The following GUIDE TO KATHERINE PETTIT CORRESPONDENCE represents only a fraction of Katherine Pettit‘s (1868-1936) dialog with board members, donors, family, friends, and business associations. Additional correspondence will be added to this GUIDE as items are located. Material within each folder year has been partially scanned and additional material will be added as full text when appropriate and scanning can be accomplished.

Note: Katherine Pettit’s correspondence consists of typewritten originals or carbon copies unless otherwise indicated. The carbon copies, usually unsigned, were placed in the Pine Mountain office files at the time of their writing. The authors of most unsigned letters can be determined by the dictator’s initials at the end of the letters. The addressee received the signed original letter.

Many letters remain to be integrated into the following files and will be added as they are processed.
