ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

It is with great pleasure that I recognize those who helped me create this book. Without the help of fellow historians, librarians, academic institutions, and historical foundations, I might not have made it. Without the fine people of Dalton, Georgia, and the inspiration of friends and family, I know I never would have.

My interest in southern industrialization began when I was a doctoral student at Vanderbilt University, where it was my good fortune to work with many fine historians who were actively reinterpreting the region's past. My mentor, Don H. Doyle, deserves much of the credit for whatever merit this book possesses. He embodies the best qualities of both a fine academic and a decent human being, and I am more grateful for his influence than he could possibly know. David L. Carlton brought his remarkable knowledge of southern history to the topic and generously offered encouragement, challenging critiques, and sound advice. Paul K. Conkin, Donald L. Winters, and sociologist Barratt A. Lee also deserve a hearty thanks for all of their advice and support. The Southern Social History Group at Vanderbilt offered helpful criticism of my work in its initial stages. I want especially to thank Mary Ann DeCredico,
