In Search of the American Hobo
White, Sarah Matthews, Department of English, University of Virginia
Howard, Alan, Department of English, University of Virginia
This project explores both the economic causes that 'created' the hobo and the subsequent hobo subculture that grew out of his marginalized social existence. The hobo's birth, growth, and demise are laid out using images, excerpts from contemporary literature, and social studies.
