45. William Preston Few, “Southern Public Opinion,” South Atlantic Quarterly 4 (January 1905): 1-12.
Address critical of Southern provincialism, especially in regards to matters involving race. “It is high time for us to open wide our eyes and look about us and beyond us to what others have done. Our problem is to learn the best that has been thought and said and done elsewhere, to become familiar with the results of experiments in civilization made in other parts of the world, to find out how others have successfully done their tasks in education, in politics, and in other human concerns, and to apply these results to our own conditions.”
