In 1910, the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women worked to open the first school
to serve families in and around Gatlinburg. Thanks to a nearly quarter-million
dollar grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the
history of education and arts literacy in the Smokies will be preserved and
accessible to all. The University of Tennessee Libraries, in partnership with
the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and the Pi Beta Phi Elementary School,
Gatlinburg, TN, will create a fully-searchable digital collection of letters,
diaries, photographs, and short printed items that document the history of the
Pi Beta Phi Settlement School and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.
