Abstract: A study of Swain County, North Carolina from its creation in 1871 to 1927. The diffusion of culture is in the broadest senseas old as culture itself. But how does this diffusion take place? What is its relation to the mesne of communication. Does ideological culture change as rapidly as material culture, and if not, what are the resistance to it? What are some of the survivals of the old culture as it existedbefore the introduction of modern influences? These are some of the questions which determined the lines of investigation for the present study.
