"The problem that the South now presents," asserted Walter Hines Page in an Atlantic Monthly article in 1902, "has at last become so plain that thoughtful men no longer differ about it. It is no longer obscured by race differences nor by political differences. It is simply the training of the untrained masses." Education, Page was sure, would build a new "democratic order of society" in the South, would, as he had asserted in a famous 1897 speech, "develop the forgotten man .... The neglected people will rise," he went on, "and with them will rise all the people."
