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.
"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
