During the 1930s, the Federal Government was condemning large portions of North Carolina lands, especially in the western mountain areas. Governmental officials were able to do this because of three discrepancies in the title documents; Vague Description, Formal Defects in Deeds, and Failure to Record Deeds. Mr. Gardner describes each of these legal terms and how state property owners could be affected.
In 1935, the state educated as many high school students as it supported inmates across the state. These statistics caused debate amongst state politicians on how to correct this situation. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction in North Carolina presents an argument that better training and education in citizenship would create a more responsible population less likely to be imprisoned.
