“Pine Mountain, owing to the devotion that has been given to it in the past seventeen years, is now an entity.” was the opening sentence in a one-page letter sent from the School “To the Friends of the Pine Mountain Settlement School.” Dated May 23, 1930, the letter served to announce the retirement on June 1st of Miss Katherine Pettit, Director, and Miss Angela Melville, Associate Director, and that both were continuing their service to the School as members of the Board of Trustees.

The letter went on to report that Mr. Henry Hubert Hadley was employed as the third director of the School since its founding. Mr. Hadley’s background was described as follows:

We are fortunate in having secured as director Mr. Henry Hubert Hadley, a Texan. Mr. Hadley holds an M.A. degree from Greeley Teachers College in Colorado, and has taught for ten years, the last two of which have been spent in the mountains of Kentucky, as executive of the Carcassone Community Center of Gander. Mr. Hadley is a fortunate choice for Pine Mountain in his wife and two young daughters as well as in his ability and character.

This was the first major change in administration at the School. Mrs. Ethel de Long Zande, one of the School’s founders and the first director, had died in March 1928 and Miss Katherine Pettit, also a founder and co-director, continued as director, along with Miss Angela Melville as associate director, until Mr. Hadley was hired. The letter ended with this positive statement:

We look forward with confidence to his work, and ask for Pine Mountain under his direction a continuance of the friendship which you have ever given our beloved school.

Henry Hubert Hadley was born 28 August 1896 in Ellis, Texas, to Turner S. Hadley and Essie A. Reese. According to an obituary from the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia, he married Julia Alice Gahart (1897-1983) on May 25, 1918. He died 24 December 1976 in Colorado Springs, CO.

Mr. Hadley served as director of the Pine Mountain Settlement School from 1930 to 1931.
