The Southern Conservative, Darden, Ida M.
2 Darden, Ida M. The Southern Conservative

Green library-type binding with not titles or decoration on covers. Book has only light, general wear with some stains on foredges and a slight roll to spime. Interior is on slick paper with light, expected aging. This is a collection of very conservative editorials by Ida M. Darden that she originally published in her Fort Worth paper, he Southern Conservative, which she had founded in 1949. Her daughter, Helen Darden Thomas, died unexpectedly in 1960, at whcih time Darden suspended publication of her paper and prepared this collection. I do not know if the original publication was in hardback or if this was a specially-bouind volume. At any rate, these columns are extremely reactionar. Dardin was an opponent of women's suffrage, integration, and anything that even hinted at Socialism or Communism. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 277 pages
