The Small Town in American History

To pursue a course of intensive reading, as well as auditing courses, on the subject of the small town in American history. These towns are those with a population of less than 50,000. The growth and development of the small town, together with its attitudes, is an important key to the understanding of American history. Some of these towns are significant because they are typical of an era or area; others have proved to be important because of their uniqueness. Social forces, the movements of peoples, the attitudes of Americans (particularly those born before 1900), the interplay of national and local themes and events are among the topics to be explored.
