Peterson received his masters degree in journalism from Northwestern University and from 1967 to 1973 was a correspondent for the LOUISVILLE COURIER-JOURNAL. His book COALTOWN REVISITED reviews the impact of Great Society programs in eastern Kentucky, while "Southern Appalachia" gives a general introduction to the region's culture and development.
Materials include a typed manuscript of Peterson's COALTOWN REVISITED (1972), and various drafts of an article entitled "Southern Appalachia: We Call Ourselves Hillbillies", which was published in National Geographic's AMERICAN MOUNTAIN PEOPLE in 1973.
Materials concerning COALTOWN REVISITED include a typed manuscript (327 pgs.) containing minor handwritten corrections presumably made by editorial staff, along with galley proofs. "Southern Appalachia" materials include typescript drafts, galley and page proofs, research notes, photographs, and correspondence of Ann C. Resh, a research assistant for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. Correspondence is directed to and from persons Peterson quoted in his article and relates to the accuracy of various statements used there.
Open to researchers.
