All students at Berea College have worked in the Student Labor Program since its official beginning in 1906. Many things about the program have changed. Some student positions no longer exist and others have evolved considerably. There also used to be a Labor Day Parade and contests for certain kinds of work. This exhibit explores a few labor positions, kinds of work, and Labor Day activities that no longer exist. It uses artifacts from the Berea College history collection and images from the College archives.
