Tempie Jane (Bell) Witten (1901-1985), a native of Grayson County, Kentucky, taught elementary and high school for more than 40 years. This manuscript collection of more than 1,500 items, available at WKU’s Special Collections Library, includes genealogical research on the Bell, McCrady, Skaggs, Salsman, Witten and other families; materials relating to Witten’s teaching career; news clippings on Grayson County history, people and places; and information relating to Grayson County schools and churches. Of particular interest are four letters describing Japan in 1947-48, and a 1975 sermon by LaVerne Butler of Ninth & O Baptist Church in Louisville on school desegregation and busing of students in that city and Jefferson County.
A collection finding aid is available here.
