Abstract

W. O. Mize, J. T. Day, and Green Berry Swango founded Hazel Green Academy in 1880. Eventually, administration and financial support were shifted to agencies of the Disciples of Christ (Christian) Church, first under the Christian Women's Board of Missions in 1886, and then under the United Christian Missionary Society in 1919. Formal support from the national church ended in 1971. The Academy was a boarding school throughout its ninety-six years and the curriculum included both college preparatory and vocational courses. A sizable physical plant developed along with fairly extensive land holdings. For a time the Academy maintained its own electric and water systems, hospital and community health clinic, 212-acre demonstration farm, kindergarten, used clothing store, and community library.

Other Note:

The records and photographs of the Hazel Green Academy were collected and organized in 1983 by the staff of the Settlement Institutions of Appalachia/Berea College Research Resources Project that was funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities grant.  Those records possessing administrative, legal and historical value were microfilmed by the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives.   Selected photographs were copied by Project staff in Berea.  All originals were then returned to Hazel Green Academy.  A set of copy negatives and prints and the master microfilm negative are owned by Berea College.

Shortly after the microfilming and photo copying was completed, financial difficulties brought the Academy’s closing in August 1983.  The Hazel Green records that had been copied and much additional material were moved to Hutchins Library and all literary and/or copyrights, were transferred to Berea College.

The records and photographs that were copied are now found in this collection, Hazel Green Academy Collection, 1886-1982, BCA 0249 SAA 038.
