9780813168548: The Life and Work of John C. Campbell

John C. Campbell (1867–1919) is widely considered to be a pioneer in the objective study of the complex world of Appalachian mountaineers. Thanks to a grant from the Russell Sage Foundation, Campbell traveled throughout the region with his wife―noted social reformer and "songcatcher" Olive Dame Campbell―interviewing and profiling its people. His landmark work, The Southern Highlander and His Homeland, is cited by nearly every scholar writing about the region, yet little has been published about the Campbells and their role in the sociological, educational, and cultural history of Appalachia.

Elizabeth McCutchen Williams has prepared the first critical edition of Olive Dame Campbell's comprehensive overview of her husband's life and work―a project left unfinished at the time of Olive's death. Never before published, this unique volume draws extensively on diary entries and personal letters to illuminate the significance and lasting impact of John C. Campbell's contributions. The result is a dynamic blend of biography and collected correspondence that presents an insightful portrait of the influential educator and reformer.

About the Author:

American folklorist Olive Dame Campbell (1882–1954) was the author or coauthor of numerous books, including English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians and Appalachian Travels: The Diary of Olive Dame Campbell. In 1925, she founded the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina.

Elizabeth McCutchen Williams, research librarian and associate professor at Appalachian State University, is the author of Appalachian Travels: The Diary of Olive Dame Campbell.

Review:

"This biography of John C. Campbell will be very important to any Appalachian scholar."―Philis Alvic, author of Weavers of the Southern Highlands

"It is very good to see this classic manuscript finally making its way into print. It's a treasure trove of information and documentation not only on the careers of John and Olive Campbell but also on socioeconomic and educational conditions of southern Appalachia writ large during this crucial, latter phase of the region's 'discovery' by outsiders in the 1910s."―John C. Inscoe, author of Race, War, and Remembrance in the Appalachian South
