Part three of the Pine Mountain Settlement School Collection includes materials relating to the nativity play performed at the school for many years and a set of photographic negatives that document various aspects of the school's early history.

Series I Nativity Play Part 3, Box 1

The nativity play material was compiled during the early 1980s by Garnet Starkey in honor of Pine Mountain co-founder Ethel de Long, who originated the play in 1915. In addition to de Long's script, Starkey includes commentary regarding changes in the play's presentation that came with changing times at Pine Mountain. She also includes words for the hymns and carols used in the play, and 1980s era photos of school buildings and surroundings.
