Collection Overview

Biography / History
Born in Rowan County, Ky., Cora Wilson Stewart was educated at Morehead Normal School, the National Normal University and the University of Kentucky. In 1911, while serving as superintendent of Rowan County Schools, she established an adult education program aimed at eliminating illiteracy known as the "Moonlight Schools." Her pioneering efforts on behalf of illiteracy gained her a national reputation as an education reformist. In 1914 she was appointed head of the newly formed Kentucky Illiteracy Commission. She later worked for the Illiteracy Commission of the National Education Association, the National Illiteracy Crusade, the World Federation of Educational Associations and other agencies throughout the 1920s and 1930s. During the 1930s her involvement in education waned as she became active in the Oxford Group, a religious organization. Stewart authored a series of readers for adult illiterates as well as for American soldiers during World War I.
Scope and Content
The collection consists of photographs from the papers of Cora Wilson Stewart, founder of the moonlight schools and pioneer in the national movement to eradicate adult illiteracy. The bulk of the photographs document moonlight schools in Eastern Kentucky, presenting images of classroom scenes and individual and group portraits of students and teachers. Identification and personal notes about outstanding students accompany many of the photographs. In addition to providing important visual information on illiteracy programs, the collection offers a significant source of material for the study of the Appalachian people, culture, and architecture in the early 1900s. Box 5 contains a separate series of photographs related to Cora Wilson Stewart's personal life, friends, and colleagues.
