Jennie Jeffers Ashby

Several years ago we processed a small collection of papers from long-time teacher Jennie Jeffers Ashby, who received a Normal Life Diploma from Eastern Kentucky State Normal School in 1907.

Bill Ellis, retired EKU history faculty, wrote his August 2010 Kentucky Monthly column about Mrs. Ashby and her teaching career. Her memoirs offer a wonderful look at education in Kentucky during the first half of the 20th century.

Check out the article or better yet come in and look at the collection.
