Interview Summary

Edith Shaw graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and came to Leslie County in 1936 to do missionary work. She tells of holding Sunday school in a barn when she first arrived, and also mentions the log cabins she saw. Shaw describes the trip from Yeaddiss to Hyden, about eighteen miles. The small mountain farms, each with hogs, cows, chickens, and a large garden, are recalled in detail. Shaw also tells how the people spent their time and comments that some persons had books in their homes. Electricity reached her area in the early 1950s. At the time Shaw came to the area no medical facilities existed, and she discusses the establishment of the Cutshin Clinic and the Cutshin Bible Mission.
