Archives Month is a time to focus on the importance of records of enduring value. This year the theme is Education, so in this space, we've highlighted documents and objects created by and used in educational institutions in Kentucky. Most of these institutions are defunct or have morphed into something else. They include female academies, Rosenwald schools, missionary institutes and trade schools.
