Pate, Lennie, Papers

 Collection — Container: M1996-19
Identifier: M1996-19

Scope and Contents

Personal papers, circa 1938-1960, of Lennie Pate, teacher and educator, of Pensacola, Florida, comprising biographical records concerning her kindergarten students and activities of her kindergarten classes at N. B. Cook and A. K Suter elementary schools in Pensacola, Florida.

NOTES:   &nnsp; Useful collection for genealogical information on Pensacola families.

A detailed listing of names is available at the repository.

Without recourse to other biographical materials, it appears that Lennie Pate was a kindergarten teacher, probably at N. B. Cook School, Pensacola, Florida, and perhaps at A. K. Suter School. She apparently maintained biographical cards and forms on her pupils which contain such information as name, address, parent's name, birthdate, church, names of siblings, doctor, illness record, and handedness (right or left). In addition, she maintained behavior forms according to a chart she used about temperament, and other characteristics.

Many of the cards are undated, but from dates of illnesses, it is estimated that these materials cover from 1938 through 1960.

The collection is arranged as:

Folder 1   &nnsp; Biographical cards A-J, K-L

Folder 2   &nnsp; Behavioral scheets (marked with * on inventory)

Folder 3   &nnsp; Other materials 15

Copies of behavioural forms; lists of students in plays

done by Lennie Pate's kindergarten classes; letter   &nnsp;

concerning Pate property in Hickory Shores.
