Examining the life of Milford Howard was a fascinating experience. I cannot deny that I have gained an admiration and affection for the man. Through Howard I have also gained a very personal and informative view of Populism and the early New South. This is certainly not to say that Howard was important and influential in the general scheme of Southern politics and society, he was not. I do suggest, however, that Howard's concerns and actions, like those of any thoughtful, sensitive individual, are worthy of note and investigation. As much as the perceived "successes" of his time, Howard's life helps us understand the historical era in which he struggled.
