Abstract: This research reveals that 19 th and early 20 th century literary imagery was not only remarkably persistent in the production of narratives about Appalachia’s economic and social development; place identity also was evident in the language of regional planning policies for Appalachia in the mid 1960s. The focus of previous research aimed largely in understanding the degree to which the imagery served to: 1) reinforce writers’ perceptions of the region (Algeo 2003), and 2) produce a spatial extrapolation of geographic knowledge based on observations in eastern Kentucky that extended to represent all of Appalachia (Moore 1991). With those areas of focus, these studies stopped just short of probing the impacts that writings on Appalachia’s identity and regional imagery later may have exerted on federal policy. Although their impacts were varied, the place identity and regional imagery ultimately had impacts on regional policy language and Appalachian development.
