Unveiling Our Treasures: Cooperative Marketing and the Changing Industrial Landscape of Early 20th Century Southern Appalachia

February 28 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Unveiling Our Treasures flyerJoin Hart-Melvin Archival Research Fellows Professor Jonathan R. Brown and student Hannah McCormick as they give us a glimpse into life in Southern Appalachia and the changing industrial landscape of the United States. Their research has focused on using early 20th century Southern Appalachia as a case study to explore the impact of cooperative marketing and antitrust exemption. Professor Brown, with support from McCormick, has produced an article that uses real-world examples from US history as an undergraduate introduction to the concept of industrial organization.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information about the Hart-Melvin Fellowship: https://www.mhu.edu/about/what-to-do-and-see/ramsey-center/hart-melvin-archival-research-fellowship/
