During 1980 and 1981, eight significant writers in North Carolina passed away. The list of the dearly departed include historian Hugh T. Lefler, newspapermen Harry Golden and Jonathan Daniels, literary critic Hugh Holman, poet laureate of North Carolina James L. Person, and literary writers Thad Stem, Paul Green, and Guy Owen. These giants of the written word have left their marks upon the literary landscape of North Carolina.
Between 1917 and 1936, North Carolina promoted the widespread use and installation of electricity in rural areas for North Carolina residents. Two of the most ardent supporters of this movement were Eugene C. Branson, professor of Rural Social Economics at the University of North Carolina and Clarence H. Poe, editor of the 'Progressive Farmer.' North Carolina was the first state to implement its own program to promote electrification and stimulated the Roosevelt administration into creating the Rural Electrification Administration in 1935.
