Taking the Town

Southern intellectual life experienced a significant flourish in spite of being situated in a regional and local social environment characterized by change, violence, and disorder. The collegiate and community life of Lexington, Kentucky—a small city in the upper South—played no small part in determining the intellectual lives of not only the undergraduates but also those that comprised the upper- and middle-class white communities. This story is examined because the region, locale, interaction between the campus and the community, and how these contribute to American intellectual history may be observed. This enables an examination of the larger context in terms of locale, as well as clarifies the need to resolve the neglect often associated with the southern intellectual history.
