“Where Do Hillbillies Come From?” a presentation by Dr. Charles Watkins – Mon. Oct. 24

Dr. Charles Watkins, Salve Regina University professor of cultural and historic preservation will present: “Where Do Hillbillies Come From? : How Jefferson’s Yeoman Aristocracy Became Jed Clampett” on Monday, October 24, 4 PM – 5 PM in McKillop Library.

People in the southern Appalachians were once part of Thomas Jefferson’s yeoman aristocracy, independent farmers who had a genius for self-government, but by the turn of the century east coast intellectuals considered them to be hicks and hillbillies. How this transformation took place is the subject of the talk to be given by Dr. Charles Watkins.

Dr. Watkins is a graduate of Mars Hill College in North Carolina and holds a doctoral degree from the University of Delaware in American Cultural History and Museum Studies. He was the Director of the Erie Historical Museum in Erie, PA for four years, and before coming to Salve Regina he was director of graduate and undergraduate public history programs and the Appalachian Cultural Museum at Appalachian State University.

A reception will follow Dr. Watkins’ presentation.
