"e Too Good a Town"e : For fifty years, William Allen White, first as a reporter and later as the long-time editor of the Emporia Gazette, wrote of his small town and its Mid-American values. By tailoring his writing to the emerging urban middle class of the early twentieth century, he won his "e gospel of Emporia"e a nationwide audience and left a lasting impact on he way America defines itself.Investigating White`s life and his extensive writings, Edward Gale Agran explores the dynamic thought of one of America`s best-read and most-respected social commentators. Agran shows clearly how White honed his style and transformed the myth of conquering the western frontier into what became the twentieth-century ideal of community building.Once a confidante of and advisor to Theodore Roosevelt, White addressed, and reflected in his work, all the great social and political oscillations of his time-urbanization and industrialism, populism, and progressivism, isolationism internationalism, Prohibition, and New Deal reform. Again and again, he asked the question "e What`s the matter "e about his times and townspeople, then found the middle ground. With great care and discernment, Agran gathers the man strains of White`s messages, demonstrating one writer`s pivotal contribution to our idea of what it means to be an American. Englisch, Ebook
