Their correspondence, divided into two parts, comprises 136 items that cover the couple’s application for the position at Line Fork and their subsequent correspondence following their arrival and work with the satellite settlement and the supervising institution, Pine Mountain School. The bulk of the correspondence is that of the Rev. Robert Stapleton who managed the business end of the Line Fork facility and developed the religious programming.
