Twenty-three oral history interviews were conducted in July 1987 by Linda Wireman and Betty Nave that focus on the women's suffrage movement in eastern Kentucky in the early 1900s. These oral history interviews are digitized and accessible online via the University of Kentucky Libraries' Louis B. Nunn Center for Oral History. The series includes family histories and home life as well as women's roles in the suffrage movement.
Welcome to H-Kentucky
The goal of H-Kentucky is to create an online collaborative environment to facilitate communication and the exchange or scholarly and pedagogical ideas among teachers, researchers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists), all in an open, democratic, respectful and non-partisan manner. H-Kentucky especially welcomes those who are interested in Kentucky, as well as those in any history/humanities field who live and/or work in Kentucky.
I have a friend in New Zealand who is an elementary school principal and is "looking for a way to keep great principals in the job rather than burning them out." She believes that if schools will allow for principals to have some time (and space) to follow their passions outside of school that this will help retain them. Sheis a fabulous quilter and of course knew about Paducah's Quilt Museum already - so she is gathering resources to visit Kentucky to study how we address principal wellbeing.
