Additional verification/support for the Caudill note:
This is taken from one of the McKinney articles cited in the footnotes:
- "For Appalachian scholars in all disciplines, the domination of the region's economy by outside interests is a well-established fact. This historical development was welcomed by local elites in the period after the Civil War as a way to revive the moribund regional economy. With the collapse of the Appalachian economy in the 1920s, the advent of the Great Depression, and the War on Poverty in the 1960s, the early industrialists later seemed more like villains than saviors. This latter attitude was given voice by Harry M. Caudill, a lawyer from eastern Kentucky. In 1962, he published Night Comes to the Cumberlands that reached a broad national audience. The book's impact was considerable and is often credited with helping to create the Appalachian Regional Commission." "
It was originally included in the footnote, however I moved it here (temporarily), since the full quote was not necessary to establish the link to Caudill. Also, there were many other forces involved in getting the ARC going (the tens of millions of people in the area and their dozens of Congressmen and Senators, for starters); I was concerned dedicating that large a portion of the article to Caudill (>25%) overemphasizes his role.
This was a temporary move pending editor discussion and consensus; if there's consensus to add it back, by all means do so. --A. B. 00:12, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
- Hi A.B. I added this quote from McKinney as I felt it was pertinent. But it's not a big deal if it's taken out and left as a reference. It was just nice to see the quote of the impact of Caudill's 1962 book. Perhaps it could be just trimmed down ... Best. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc 18:15, 15 November 2006 (UTC) (talk)
