Overview of the Collection

These are records and photographs documenting the founding, administration and activities of the Hindman Settlement School in Knott County, Kentucky, 1899-1979.

This collection was compiled by the Settlement Institutions of Appalachia / Berea College Research Resources Project, and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project was developed in 1979 for the purpose of organizing and preserving the original records and photographs of the Settlement Institutions of Appalachia (SIA) and copying those of historical value to form a central research collection at Berea College.

Part A: Selected Records

Hindman Settlement School records were collected and organized in 1982. Those having administrative, legal or historical value were microfilmed at the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives and the originals then returned to Hindman. The resultant master microfilm negative is owned by Berea College. A use copy is available in Hutchins Library's Department of Special Collections and Archives. Because Berea College does not own the copyright for the material contained in this microfilm edition, it is the responsibility of the researcher to secure permission to publish from Hindman Settlement School or its successors and assigns.

Part B : Selected Photographs

Selected photographs were copied by Project staff. The original photographs and a set of copy prints were returned to the school. The copy negatives and one set of copy prints are owned by Berea College and are available in Hutchins Library's Department of Special Collections and Archives.

Permission has been granted by Hindman Settlement School for Berea College to reproduce all or part of the school's photographs and to use them in slide or film presentations, to display them or loan them for display, and to allow their use by researchers for reproduction and publication. The proper credit line for their publication shall be: "Hindman Settlement School Records, Berea College Southern Appalachian Archives."
