Big Laurel Extension Center, also known as the Medical Settlement, was established at Big Laurel in Harlan County, Kentucky in 1919 and staffed by Harriet Butler and Dr. Grace Huse. The Line Fork Settlement, established at Gilly in Letcher County, Kentucky in 1920, was first staffed by Isabella McClannan and Martha Van Meter. The Centers offered health services, instruction and demonstration of personal and community hygiene, hot lunch programs provided through student labor, programs concerning improved nutrition, and practice in community cooperation.
These document the development of the two extension centers and the range of their activities, including medical services, home visits, and clinics.
KYSX274-A supplies further information on the collection of which this series is a part.
