Historian Jennifer Ritterhouse discusses Discovering the South: One Man’s Travels through a Changing America in the 1930s, a travelogue that follows Jonathan Daniels, editor of the Raleigh News and Observer, through the post-Civil War south. Ritterhouse brings together Daniels’ unpublished notes and archival evidence to show how a young, white, and liberal-minded man came to know the South in a changing political and social landscape. This event is part of the University Libraries’ Mason Author Series. Sponsored by the Department of History and Art History.
