Size 7.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 4500 items)
Abstract Charles Horace Hamilton was a rural sociologist with particular interests in rural life, the rural church, the rural family, rural health issues, the land tenure system, farm labor, internal migration, methods of population analysis, and social statistics. After teaching at many institutions, including at Lon Morris College in Jacksonville, Tex., the University of North Carolina, and Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Hamilton was appointed professor of rural sociology at North Carolina State University and consulted widely in his field. The collection is chiefly Hamilton's professional and personal correspondence. Personal correspondence includes a number of letters from family members. Most of the papers cover Hamilton's years at Lon Morris College, UNC, VPI, and NCSU, and treat topics such as rural sociology, farm tenancy, interracial cooperation, and African-American education. Correspondence provides information about the interracial cooperation movement in Texas and the study of social science at UNC in the 1920s and 1930s. Correspondents include George Collins of the Fellowship of Reconciliation, Rupert Vance, and Howard Odum. There are also a few items relating to Jessie Daniel Ames.
