Appalachia: Mountain Club Oral History Project

Project Summary

The Kentucky Mountain Club, established in 1929, provides a social function for eastern Kentuckians who move to Lexington. The club, which has had as many as 1,500 members, sponsors dances and social events and provides employment contacts. It shipped food, clothing, and money to eastern Kentucky when it was struck by floods. Members discuss past club presidents, social activities, family histories, the attitudes of central Kentuckians to Appalachian people, child-rearing practices in the 1920s, transportation in eastern Kentucky during the Great Depression, the Women's Auxiliary, county histories, Berea College, and race relations.
