Description This is a positive (A) and a negative (B) copy of an 1885 teacher's certificate for H.E. Thompson, issued in Pendleton County, Ky.
Notes The original certificate was one of the first issued by Pendleton County, Ky.
The copies were mailed to the Kentucky Historical Society in December 1949 by B.R. Chapman, a professor of history at the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College in Stillwater, Okla. In his accompanying letter, Chapman explains that Thompson "presented the original among his credentials in securing a position on the faculty of this college in 1893… It occurred to me that the type of certificates issued in Pendleton County in 1889 would be of historical value."
