William Edward Dodd free pdf William Edward Dodd rose from an impoverished background to become one of the early twentieth century's more distinguished southern historians. While most southern intellectuals of his time denied the existence of class conflict, Dodd made it his life's theme and was unique in using history as a means of criticizing the injustices of the class system. In William Edward Dodd: The South's Yeoman Scholar, Fred Arthur Bailey offers a much-needed biography that encompasses the full scope of Dodd's career from political activist, to presidential confidant, to American ambassador in Hitler's Germany. At the beginning of the twentieth century, most southern men and women of letters were the scions of the region's "better families", individuals inclined to defend the Old South with its sharply articulated social structure. Born into a family of modest means in Clayton, North Carolina, Dodd saw little virtue in a patrician-dominated society and deeply resented the easy successes of the privileged. He lashed out at the South's oppressive class structure in his lectures, articles. and books and embraced a Jeffersonian idealism, longing to be the catalyst that would infuse an egalitarian spirit into his native region. Leaving behind the narrow confines of rural North Carolina, he became the friend and intellectual peer of historians Frederick Jackson Turner, John Spencer Bassett, and Carl Becker and developed intimate associations with presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt. Eventually he observed firsthand the villainy of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, and Herman Goering. Dodd remained throughout his career not only a radical proponent of democracy but also astrident critic of those he marked as its enemies- he savaged southern aristocrats, northern industrialists, and German Nazis alike. This biography explores the development of William Edward Dodd's rebellious intellect and is the first to fully appreciate the context in which his views were formed. Dodd was a major figure in his discipline and a pioneer who insisted history and its interpretations did not belong merely to the elite.
