BIOGRAPHY PMSS Workers 1913 – 2000s Guide

[NOTE: Table may not display properly on MOBILE DEVICES]

The PMSS WORKERS 1913 – 2000s GUIDE contains the following staff lists:

Original Staff List 1913 – 1930 (approx. 284 records)
Expanded List (Flat File) 1913 – 2000 (1,009 records)
Excel File 1913 – 2000 (1,009 .xlsx records with expanded description)


The list compiled by Evelyn Wells in 1930 contains the names of workers at Pine Mountain Settlement School from 1913 until 1930. The list is not complete, as a few workers had very brief stays at the School and may not be represented on the list. 

From 1913 to 1930, 191 workers stayed only a year at the School. Workers with the longest length of service were, Miss Pettit and Miss de Long (Zande), with 15 years each. Miss Ruth Gaines, housekeeper and dietician had 18 years and Evelyn Wells, secretary, had 13 years. And both their tenures continued beyond 1930. Leon Deschamps, farmer, forester and teacher, was at Pine Mountain for 9 years and Wilmer Stone, housemother, and Marguerite Butler, teacher and extension worker, were each in residence for 8 years. Most workers came for about two to three years during the early period of the School’s history and some were only summer workers, as the list indicates.
