Physical Description: These 8 oral histories were conducted to supplement material on the Council of the Southern Mountains and the War on Poverty in eastern Kentucky.  Interview logs and related documents are in each folder. Interview audio files and doument files are located on the Sound Archives server.
Scope and Contents: The interviews were conducted by students in Chris Green's APS 286 course during the summer of 2015. The project was spurred by three situations and a decided gap in the research on the topics it addresses. First, these interviews were conducted as the 50 year anniversary of the War on Poverty was approaching.  Second, as Director of the Loyal Jones Appalachian Center, Green had paid close attention to the history of the center and Loyal Jones, both of which were intimately connected to the Council of the Southern Mountains (CSM).  Third, scholars have not examined the work of Perley Ayer, whose leadership from 1951 to 1967 brought the Council into pertinence and prominence.
