Contributing Activists and Scholars

Mary Thom Adams served as the development director at Highlander from 1990 through 1999. Following her years there, she worked as a consultant, primarily in Knoxville, Tennessee, but also for many nonprofits throughout the South and in Appalachia. She currently serves as the director of development for Ijams Nature Center, a 275-acre wildlife sanctuary and environmental learning center, and continues to work with many organizations in the Knoxville area.

Monica Appleby served as the director of the New Enterprises Fund (NEF), a community development financial institution based in the New River Valley of Appalachia, before she moved to ElderSpirit Community (ESC) in Abingdon, Virginia. Both NEF and ESC were “start-ups” and typical of Monica’s life and work in the region since 1959. Appleby is the author, with Helen Matthews Lewis, of Mountain Sisters: From Convent to Community in Appalachia (2003).

Patricia D. Beaver is the director of the Center for Appalachian Studies and a professor of anthropology at Appalachian State University. She has conducted research in China and southern Appalachia and, with Helen Lewis, developed a study-abroad program in Wales. She is the author of numerous books and articles on Appalachia, China, and Wales, and her current interests focus on ethnic diversity in the southern Appalachians, particularly African American communities, New River headwaters history and culture change, and collaborative research.
