This chapter recounts Still’s transition from teaching at Morehead to living in Knott County where problems and change were increasingly evident. President Johnson’s War on Poverty put a national focus on the region’s economy and environment. Still continued to develop his public personality during the 1970s and built connections with people like Cratis Williams, Robert Higgs, Harry Caudill, Bill Weinberg, and Mike Mullins. He was inadvertently becoming part of the emerging Appalachian Studies movement that would lead eventually to the title unofficially bestowed on him: Dean of Appalachian Literature.

Keywords:   transition, War on Poverty, Cratis Williams, Appalachian Studies, Dean of Appalachian Literature
