Content Description

In 1941, Putnam County held a county-wide musical festival that elementary school, high school, and college students attended and participated in. The event was held in the gymnasium on Tennessee Technological University’s campus. The songs and acting in the festival traced events throughout American history, including depictions of Native American life, Pilgrims, colonial life, frontier life, and World War I. The musical acts also depict plantation life and slavery. The event was an observance of American education week. The collection contains newspaper articles, scripts, committee lists, song lists, song lyrics, instructions for the event, and correspondence.
