Reformers to Radicals


University Press of Kentucky

Loyal Jones, CSM's assistant director, encountered a crucial challenge. The headquarters of the movement was moved to Bristol as it was closer to the heart of the mountains. The Council was considering establishing an independent branch of the Appalachian Volunteers as some members began to question Ayer's leadership. However, it was thought that the CSM would lose control over the most significant reform effort if the AVs were to leave. Jones advised the Office of Economic Opportunity to separate the Councils from the AVs. Although Jones may be perceived to have been more sympathetic to the frustration that the volunteers felt on the War on Poverty, Ayer's call to partnership was able to invite everyone to become involved in an educational and political sense, recognizing that the program was their own. This chapter looks into the separation of the AVs from the CSM.
