Collection Description

Scope and Content

The Louise "Coffee" Worth Oral History Collection consists of two interviews with Coffee Worth by journalist Josina Guess. Louise Maxwell "Coffee" Worth (1919-2020) earned her degree in early childhood education at Woman's College, later known as the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She and her husband, George Worth, were educational missionaries through the Presbyterian Church in South Korea. While there, Worth helped to establish an early childhood education program at Keimyung College. In 1975, Worth came back to the United States and lived at Koinonia Farm, an intentional Christian community in Americus, Georgia, where she helped to establish a preschool for the local African American community. At age 80, Worth began teaching English to refugees for Jubilee Partners.
