Long Description:
Giles County natives Donald G. Davidson and John C. Ransom were influential personages in American Literature. Professors at Vanderbilt University, they helped found The Fugitive (1922-25) a magazine which launched the "Southern literary renaissance." They contributed to the essential Agrarian manifesto I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition (1930), essays critical of industry's dehumanizing effects on the South.
