Alvin Drew School was a Methodist Protestant school which operated at Pine Ridge, Kentucky, between 1911 and 1947. The school was sponsored by the Women's Home Missionary Society of the Methodist Protestant Church in an effort to provide an educational opportunity to mountain children. Mrs. M. O. Everett, a church missionary from Washington, D.C., founded the school and operated it until Reverend and Mrs. Thomas Reeves Woodford replaced her in 1919. The Woodfords remained for fifteen years during which time the enrollment grew to 240 students.
Included in the collection are biographical sketches of Dr. and Mrs. Woodford; a copy of the Pine Ridge Booster (1945), which is dedicated to Thomas Reeves Woodford; a class reunion program (1965); an alumni notice (1969); and a history of the school compiled by R. B. Stone of Lexington, Kentucky.
