Political Outputs in the South, 1880-1910: Who Got What, when, Where and Why?

To test several hypotheses about the Progressive Era in the South. The analysis has direct implications for the following questions: Did Progressivism in the South represent a sharp break with the past, or merely a continuation of past trends? Did Southern Progressivism benefit both whites and Negroes, whites only, or only some whites? Is there sufficient evidence to establish that changes in political inputs in the period (suffrage restriction, the destruction of competitive political parties) caused changes in the distribution of the chief governmental output (education)?
