Elizabeth Kytle grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. After graduating from Valdosta State University, Elizabeth met her husband, Calvin Kytle, while working for the National Youth Administration. The two were married shortly before Calvin entered the military and served in World War II. While Calvin was abroad, Elizabeth continued to work for the National Youth Administration, followed by brief stints with the Citizens' Fact Finding Movement and then at the Bell Bomber Plant in public relations. In 1945, the two were reunited in Atlanta, Georgia. Calvin taught at Emory University until 1949, when they moved to Ohio.--From Oral Histories of the American South biography.
