The 1948 Pine Mountain Settlement School calendar was the work of Arthur W. Dodd, a worker at Pine Mountain whose beautifully composed photographic work is widely distributed throughout the School’s promotional literature. The images in this calendar highlight events from the year as well as classic landscapes across the campus.

Sent to friends and donors, the calendar, like many before and after it, is a persuasive fund-raiser for the School. The note that accompanied the calendar describes the School and encourages additional purchases and donations.

The Pine Mountain Settlement School, founded in 1913, is a Christian, but non-sectarian School supported by voluntary subscription. Its sole aim is to enrich the minds and lives of a people living in an isolated region of the Kentucky mountains.

The School has a hundred young students living on the grounds — learning by doing; a small hospital with neighborhood clinics; a full community program at its outpost on Line Fork, five miles distant.

In spite of the pressure of rising costs, it has kept its standards high. We hear with pride, that its students are noticeable in ay group for their poise intelligence and qualities of Christian character, 

This Calendar is their message to you. We hope you like it and will want additional copies.
