Title:South as an underdeveloped country; [n.d.]

From the Miller (Michael J.) Civil Rights Collection; This report documents the economic conditions in the South in the 1960s, and it addresses ways of bringing the region up to the standard of the northern half of the country. The document maintains that social viewpoints are holding back the full industrialization of the South and mentions issues like agricultural mechanization, job training, and the need to lure industrial plants to the area.
