The Bright Tobacco Industry, 1860-1929

By Nannie M. Tilley


This study is concerned with the cultivation, marketing, and manufacture of Bright Tobacco--technically called flue-cured tobacco--in the Virginia-Carolina area and its subsequent expansion into Georgia. The author discusses many aspects of the industry and in conclusion surveys the effects of the introduction of greater capital into the Virginia-Carolina area.

Originally published in 1948.
