TAGS: Life and work; Pine Mountain Settlement School; Harlan County, KY; education; clubs; handwork; crafts; weaving;


Listed as Series VII: Life and Work in the Pine Mountain Settlement School Records, 1913-1984 the collections were copied by the Berea College Southern Appalachian Archives .  This series contains images of School clubs and handwork classes at Pine Mountain during the 1940s through the 1970s. Total images in Series VII Fils 84-86 are 18.  The total number of photographs selected by Berea from the comprehensive collection are 717, selected from 3,318 mounted prints on file at Boy’s House archive.

Many of the activities captured include classroom instruction, craft projects, woodworking shop, making musical instruments and weaving. During the Community School years craft activities for the community were also provided after school hours and when the School closed many of the craft and woodworking opportunities continued for the community.

Also in the collection are a scattering of images from the 1940s when photographers Ray Garner and his wife Virginia came as representatives of the Harmon Foundation and on request of Pine Mountain to photograph life of the campus. Ray Garner later became an internationally known photographer who developed several unique techniques in documentary film. The craft and industrial activities during the 1940s were integral to the educational programs of the school and were often part of the labor assignment of the students in industrial activities that repaired automobiles, built furniture, weaving runners for furniture, and other activities. The atmosphere was decidedly a work-study environment.

The images from the Community School days depict classroom activities and craft programs integrated into the curriculum and also offered after school hours. The activities depicted include woodworking, sewing, weaving, and other activities as captured by various unidentified photographers. Also included are selected images of students from the kindergarten school that was known as “Little School,” run by Pine Mountain in cooperation with Head Start.

Many of the staff and the students are identified in this set of images and include such well-known instructors as Cora Campbell, Gerna Campbell, Alvin Boggs, former Director of the School, Edna Patterson, an accomplished weaver and Mary Rogers, wife of former Director Burton Rogers, and others. The students are identified where known.
