Berea Catalog 1918

In 1916, Berea began to restrict admission to students from the mountain region as defined by the Russell Sage Foundation. “In 1917, there appeared for the first time in the catalog a list of the mountain counties,” totaling 265 (Ambrose 2). Our ArcGIS recreation is based on the map from the 1918 catalog.
