Yerkey, Ruth Knarr Papers

Description

Mrs. Ruth Knarr Yerkey, who was known as "Rufy" during her years at Eastern, graduated from Eastern Kentucky State Normal School and Teachers College in 1928 with a bachelor's degree in history. She also attended the University of Cincinnati, Miami University of Ohio, and the University of Kentucky. She taught for forty-one years in the Newport City Schools, both in the elementary schools and junior high schools.
