Abstract

"The South during the great Depression is a complicated historiographical narrative. Few sources cover the topic exhaustively, but many cover the region and era in a peripheral or secondary manner. Because of this, there is room for additional sources and studies. It is time to reexamine the primary sources of the period (with Bingham and underwood) and reevaluate, reinterpret, and revise our assumptions and conclusion about the success (or not) of the new Deal in the 1930s. thus, the sources mentioned above are by no means a complete or exhaustive look at the south in the great Depression, but a representation of possibilities for scholarship."
