Collection Overview

Biography / History
James Stephen Brown was born on October 20, 1916 in a coal camp at McVeigh in Pike County, Kentucky. He spent the first 12 years of his life living in coal camps, where his father, Luther, worked for the YMCA, and his mother, Lydia, taught children's Sunday School. Because his parents wanted Jim and his brothers to have an opportunity for life beyond the coal camp experience, Jim's father took a job in Berea College's Broomcraft Department and the family moved to Berea, Kentucky in 1928.
Brown earned an A.B. degree from Berea in 1937, majoring in economics with additional work in history, political science, and philosophy. He went on to study sociology at Harvard, was mentored by Talcott Parsons, and earned an M.A. in 1942 and a Ph.D. in 1950.
Throughout his academic career, he was particularly interested in the social structure of eastern Kentucky and made intensive studies of community life in that region. His research emphasized kinship structure, but he was also interested in social change and the adjustment of migrants from rural Kentucky into their new urban settings.
Brown worked as a Social Science Analyst with the U.S. Department of Education from 1945 to 1946, when he began work as an "assistant" in the University of Kentucky's Department of Rural Sociology. He was later promoted to Assistant Professor of Rural Sociology in 1949 and eventually, in 1965, to Professor. Under the Fulbright-Hays program, he was awarded a research fellowship in Germany (1954-55) at Bonn University, and later also in Italy (1964-65) at the University of Naples. He coauthored the book, Mountain Families in Transition (with Harry K. Schwarzweller and J.J. Mangalam), Pennsylvania State University Press, 1971. Brown's dissertation research was later published as Beech Creek: A Study of a Kentucky Mountain Neighborhood Berea College Press, 1988. He also published numerous academic articles and reports.
Due to a disability, Brown retired from the University of Kentucky in the early 1980s, but continued to work with younger colleagues on a fourth phase of the Beech Creek project. He also maintained his personal relationships with Beech Creekers and with his former research associates until his death on October 28, 1999.
Scope and Content
Much of the information in this collection relates to James Brown's research on families living in eastern Kentucky, particularly his study of the social organization of three small communities in eastern Kentucky, which he called "Beech Creek." Materials include correspondence, publications, presentations and lectures, research and data, memorabilia, and photographs.

Research Projects

Beech Creek 1, 1941

The initial Beech Creek study was undertaken by Brown for his doctoral dissertation, entitled "The Social Organization of an Isolated Kentucky Mountain Neighborhood." It focused on the social structure of three relatively remote mountain neighborhoods which were comprised of 77 households (399 persons) and were located in a subsistence agricultural area of Clay and Owsley Counties. The settlements were contiguous and socially linked, and he referred to them collectively as "Beech Creek." Conducting his field work from 1941-1942, Brown emphasized kinship, class, and value structures. He later used this research as the basis of his work, Beech Creek: A Study of a Kentucky Mountain Neighborhood, published by Berea College Press in 1988.

Beech Creek 2: Mountain Families in Transition, 1961

The second Beech Creek study focused on the process of migration, tracing individuals from the first Beech Creek study from their home neighborhoods to their new neighborhoods, primarily in southwestern Ohio. Brown and his colleagues, Harry Schwarzweller and J.J. Mangalam, carefully studied the home situation of Beech Creek residents before and while they were migrating, as well as the effects their moving had on the original neighborhoods and the people left behind. They also studied the Beech Creek migrants in their new environment, concentrating chiefly on how well they adjusted and lived in the new communities. This study resulted in the published work, Mountain Families in Transition (Pennsylvania State University Press, 1971).

Beech Creek 3, 1975

From the mid 1970s to the early 1980s, using lists of residents from both the first and second Beech Creek studies, Brown and his colleagues located and interviewed as many as possible of the estimated 250 informants still living. Data collected for each of the informants reflected their residential history, work history, family and household composition, economic and occupational status, education, and, for migrants, social and psychological ties with the old mountain neighborhoods, and, for non-migrants, such ties and contacts with migrants. The purpose of collecting the data was to determine whether the kinship structure was still a psychological cushion for the migrants as well as a "brake" on their integration into society, whether migrants still clustered geographically by kinship groups, and whether persons of higher economic and occupational status tended to be less mobile residentially and less tied to "back home."
