A 16-page booklet published around 1927 promoting the Alvin C. York Industrial Institute in Jamestown, Tennessee, and seeking funds for its work. The Institute was founded as a private agricultural school by World War I hero Alvin C. York in his home county of Fentress in 1926. York began raising money for a high school to cater to rural children in 1919 and secured private and public funds and it began offering classes in 1929. It operated as a private institution until financial pressures led York to transfer the school to the state of Tennessee in 1937.
