Record #:
W. T. Couch became part-time assistant director of the University of North Carolina Press in 1925. In 1927, through his efforts, the Congaree Sketches, with an emotional introduction by Paul Green, was published, and the press's publishing direction of excessive caution and conservatism was forever changed. The press would move forward as a leader in launching Modernist thought in the South during the 1920s and 1930s. Couch believed that it was important \"to bother people, to wake them up,\" and he followed this thought during his twenty years as director of the UNC Press.
