The 1943 spiral-bound calendar features quotes of the School founders as well as various photographs representing Pine Mountain Settlement School and the surrounding community in the early 1940’s. The photographs are by Arthur Dodd the staff photographer and Principal and instructor at the School.. During his tenure at the School.”Dodd,” as he was called, created many images that were used in publicity and promotion of the institution.
The images here are familiar buildings at Pine Mountain as well as other images taken in the community surrounding the School. Some photographs depict students working in the innovative community out-reach program that developed practical life skills as well as well as vocational training. The program attracted a great deal of attention from national educators as well as government programs that were looking for ways to more fully engage rural communities and their students. The educational programs at Pine Mountain during the years following WWII produced some of the most outstanding educational training and social work within the rural settlement movement.
