Pine Mountain Settlement School
Series 24: Literary Productions, Related & Derived Literature
GUIDE TO LITERATURE RELATED TO PMSS
The archive at Pine Mountain contains a rich assortment of printed literature that is related to the School, to its evolving mission, to its institutional associations, and to its history. Some of this literature must be read as part of the value systems of its day but the eclectic literature collection clearly helps to draw out the many contexts in the evolution of the institution. The literature found in scrapbooks and in files in the archive is gathered under this GUIDE TO LITERATURE RELATED TO PMSS.
This artificial aggregation of literature not only draws out the context of the institution’s development but also serves as a sub-text for regional studies of the Southern Appalachians.
Also included in the GUIDE TO LITERATURE RELATED TO PMSS are several bibliographies that have an association with the settlement school movement or with other settlement schools in the Southern Appalachians. This small body of work complements the larger holdings found in the Berea College Southern Appalachian Archives.
In addition to the full-text documents, there are news articles and associated lists of materials available to scholars and those interested in discovering the interests of the settlement school staff, administration and board at specific points in time. The literature is particularly rich in information related to the rural settlement movement.
Only material published before 1924 is represented in full text, due to copyright restrictions on some later publications.
