Abstract

C. Vann Woodward was born in 1908 in the Arkansas hamlet of Vanndale and grew up in. Morrilton, a small town on the Arkansas River fifty miles above Little Rock. His family was rooted several generations deep in Southern soil; his father was a public-school administrator and later a college dean; during his high-school and college years Woodward knew Rupert Vance, Howard Odum, and Will Alexander, intellectuals and liberals who were trying to push the South in the direction of greater cosmopolitanism and racial tolerance. From these associations Woodward absorbed influences that were to help shape the course and concerns of his career.
