Biographical/Historical Note

James William Cantrell was a resident of Young Harris, Georgia. He wrote "Race: Three Great Things Coupled - Another Yankee's View" in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He placed it in manuscript form in October 1966. Cantrell spe t much of the 45,000 words on issues of race, sometimes in terms of color. He primarily concentrates on blacks ("Negroes") but also mentions Jews, the Japanese, Indians, and "the White race." He strongly believes there are differences among races and that these are significant in some form.
