Softcover. Very good. 5" x 3.5",  pp, with several half-tone photographic illustrations. Light creasing and general handling wear; very good. Scarce promotional booklet for the Berry Schools, which were founded by Martha McChesney Berry (1865-1942) to serve the children of tenant farmers and poor landowners who did not have access to quality education. After beginning with a Sunday School in the late 1890s, Berry opened a Boys Industrial School in 1902, and a Girls Industrial School in 1909. (She would go on to found a college, as well). As described in this booklet, the purpose of the schools was "to train the poor boys and girls of the Southern mountains to become efficient citizens and homemakers" and to graduate "farmers who know how to farm, and dairymen, fruit-growers, carpenters, and others, who have received a very practical and thorough education in their several trades." The booklet describes the costs of operating the school and seeks donations to meet current expenses, increase the endowment fund, and make permanent improvements---including adding a chapel, dining hall, and other buildings. The back cover has words of praise for the schools from Theodore Roosevelt, Georgia Senator Hake Smith, and others. Not found in OCLC.
