Reformers to Radicals


University Press of Kentucky

After a short tenure as a math teacher in McDowell County, North Carolina, Milton Ogle—born in Floyd County, Virginia, and graduated from Berea College in 1955—went back to Berea and administered the broom factory of the college. He found his job enjoyable as he was able to interact with people across the region. He was also able to appreciate how Berea College contributed to the life of the Southern mountains. He maintained this attitude as he joined the CSM in 1959 and the AVs in 1963. Ogle asserted that the fundamental goal of the CSM and the AVs was to show how people could participate in efforts that would affect their lives. In explaining the cause of poverty, the two most influential explanations involved colonialism and the culture of poverty. This chapter illustrates how Mill Creek, Kentucky, was chosen to be involved with the Ford Foundation and the CSM's supplementary academic efforts.
