Origins of the Campaign for Constitutional Reform in North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
This article looks at the need and advocacy for constitutional reform in North Carolina. Despite progressive legislation in much of the country, the North Carolina legislature resisted government reform until the 1910s. Through the efforts of activist historians Joseph G. de Roulhac Hamilton and Enoch W. Sikes, as well as a number of progressive-minded people such as Josephus Daniels, legislators began addressing reform by 1910 and proposing constitutional amendments by 1913.
