The Jennie Jeffers Ashby papers are an interesting collection for researchers studying education, especially in Muhlenberg and Ohio counties. Mrs. Ashby writes about the schools where she taught and kept photographs from many of those schools. As an alumnus of Kentucky State Normal School Eastern Division (now Eastern Kentucky University) she also writes about faculty and events while she was there. Strong points of the collection are the school photographs that she collected from various schools where she taught and her personal report cards showing curriculum throughout her school career.
Only a portion of this collection has been digitized. See the Finding Aid for a description of the entire collection.
