    and exposing for public and scholarly use the complete set of documents housed within the Martha Berry Collection at the Berry College Archives Because documents had been preserved exclusively in their original physical i e print format scholars students historians and community members interested in studying the rich history and cultural heritage preserved within the collection had not been able to explore it fully Through the MBDA Project the Martha Berry Collection is being disseminated as a freely available interactive searchable and extensible educational resource which is designed to enable teachers researchers students and members of the larger community to study and learn from it One of the most exciting aspects of the project is discovering documents which reveal new insights about Martha Berry the Berry Schools and other facets of early twentieth century culture and history A partnership between Bloomsburg University where project director and Berry alumna Stephanie Schlitz is a faculty member and Berry College and between library museum English history education information technology math and linguistics faculty staff and students the MBDA project is defined by its collaborative and interdisciplinary focus We encourage prospective collaborators interested in helping us develop MBDA s teaching research and cultural heritage

    appellations such as Mr Miss and Mrs are omitted a practice which diverges from other letterhead conventions of the period e g see Bucknell University 1918 in which female names are marked with the title Miss while male names are printed without titles see the State of Illinois Daughters of the American Revolution 1926 in which Mrs followed by the husband s given and surname is used in every instance save one in which the individual bears the title Dr followed by her given name Berry was also among the overwhelming majority of women who supported Herbert Hoover not Al Smith who many feared posed a threat to the advancement of women s rights in the presidential election of 1928 Ever mindful of public perception she was nonetheless careful to distance her political beliefs from her directorial role even declining a request for a public endorsement of Hoover made by longtime friend and confidant Emily Vanderbilt Hammond pointing out that while personally she d like to acknowledge her stance it would not be best for the schools In the press as in political matters Berry fiercely guarded the schools reputation and endowment prospects She threatened libel and demanded correction when a Tennessee newspaper published false information about the amount Henry Ford had donated to the schools She rebuked actress Lucille Laverne who organized a theatrical fundraiser for the schools for publicizing the large sum anticipated well before any funds had been secured In both instances Berry stressed the detriment of such acts to the schools ability to raise finances Documents intimate that she was competitive and candid She challenged the aptness of donations made by John D Rockefeller when he directed financial contributions elsewhere During World War I when the school was in danger of losing teachers to the draft she wrote to the Secretary of War requesting an exemption for one of her staff And much correspondence chronicles her sense and sensibility In 1918 she was contacted by the parents of a soldier who died shortly following his return from the war The couple wished to donate their son s clothing in hopes that it would be of use to students at the schools Berry s acceptance of the donation reflects her compassion and her pragmatism and in an era when war deaths were common and it made little sense to preserve unused items that could be transferred to others in need the nation s That she cultivated from the original communication an exchange which led to donation of scholarship funds and ongoing support for the schools from the couple is characteristic In 1928 Berry wrote at least eleven letters asking for equipment in support of the schools new program of study in auto mechanics While this effort yielded only a few donations it illustrates a common theme in Berry s professional life persistence a trait which threads intimately through her personal life as well Although her attention seems rarely to have wavered from the mission of the schools
