Rena Gazaway, a native of Missouri, was educated at Columbia University (B.S., 1948), at the University of Cincinnati (M.A., 1952), and at Saint John's University (Ph.D., 1960). A public health nurse, Gazaway was a member of the nursing faculty of the University of Kentucky and of the University of Cincinnati and, from 1960 to 1962, lived with families in several eastern Kentucky counties. This experience led to the writing of THE LONGEST MILE which deals with the attitudes and needs of Appalachian people.
Materials consist of working outlines of Gazaway's THE LONGEST MILE, along with typescripts of the second chapter. The book was published by Doubleday in 1969.
Materials include a typescript outline of THE LONGEST MILE, along with a typescript of the book's second chapter, "Who is the Duddie's Brancher?" The outline (2 pgs.) corresponds fairly closely to the book in printed form. The typescript (32 pgs.) of "Who is the Duddie's Brancher" includes handwritten revisions apparently made by Gazaway.
KYSX253-A supplies further information on the collection of which this series is a part.
