Series III Student Records, ca 1919-1939 [Restricted] Microfilm Reels 5-43

This series consists of the extant PMSS student records. It is by no means a complete record, especially for the years prior to 1930. There are a few instances where the record dates 1913-18 or post-1940, but such papers, usually in the form of correspondence, are few and negligible to the overall emphasis of the file. The record is divided into three groupings:
  1. Students, ca 1919-30 (approximately 6 cubic feet)
  2. Students, A-Z, ca 1930-49 (approximately 19 cubic feet)
  3. Miscellaneous Student Files, ca 1928-47 (1 cubic foot)
For the most part, the individual student file is not located in more than one chronological grouping, but the researcher should check all three when searching for a particular name, especially if the student attended Pine Mountain Settlement School ca 1925-30.

The detail and extent of the documentation varies within the series. The most comprehensive file (Students, A-Z, ca 1930-49) includes the following:
  1. Student application blanks which include birth dates, directory information, prior education, and references
  2. Parents' biographical and economic status reports, which include directory information, education, employment, religious affiliation, and reports of house / land ownership and other finances (these rather personal and detailed forms were not completed uniformly by all parents)
  3. Letters of academic progress written by students and sent to parents
  4. Evaluations of students by their teachers and work supervisors
  5. Reports of cumulative credits (Pine Mountain operated on a non-graded system from ca 1934-40s
  6. Achievement and IQ testing documentation
  7. Health records. The record prior to 1930 consists of transcripts, correspondence, and billing statements sent to parents
The miscellaneous files at the end of the series are achievement testing and medical records.
