North Carolina in the Twentieth Century, 1913-1945

by Sarah McCulloh Lemmon

Although writings on the period of North Carolina history from 1913 to 1945 are sparse, there is a vast quantity of research materials available; many monographs therefore need to be written before the period can be properly interpreted by the generalist.

Two general histories, one of the state and one of the region, must be read by the person who wishes to understand North Carolina history during the generation of two wars and a depression. These two works are North Carolina: The History of a Southern State by Hugh T. Lefler and A. Ray Newsome, and Emergence of the New South by George B. Tindall.1 In the third edition of North Carolina, Lefler and Newsome devote some fifty pages to politics, economic growth, and education and include a brief section on cultural history from 1912 to 1948. Presented administration by administration, the chapters demonstrate the authors' belief in the theory of progress with quantities of statistics but with little evaluation, interpretation, or comment. Agricultural changes and the "second" industrial revolution are treated as an entity from 1930 to 1961 and are likewise heavily illustrated with statistics and charts. Tindall's work, on the other hand, is confined to the time period under
