These records document the activities of the Southern Appalachian Ministry in Higher Education from 1973-1980. They also highlight educational, social, economic, and religious issues shaping Appalachia during the 1970s. They include Board and committee minutes, correspondence, memos, project files, transcripts of interviews, surveys, newsletters, pamphlets, and articles on life in Appalachia. There are files on the boycott of the J.P. Stevens & Co. plant in Georgia.
The arrangement of the files is alphabetical by file heading. The original headings used by SAM were retained. The information given in brackets in the Box and Folder List was added by the Archives for clarification.
