ABSTRACT
The article reports on the leaders of the Southern United States. Leaders of the first order in the Nation have come out of the South. The South has now much of the same admixture of blood and social heritage that produced some of the greatest leaders of the United States. Moreover, the South has an excellent physical environment for the development of strong personalities. The shortage of leadership is being lamented generally throughout the states and elsewhere. The South is not alone in its present dearth of distinctive leadership if it were compared with individual states in other regional divisions of the union. The leaders of the future will approximate an antithesis of the old leaders of the political, military, or religious type. They will be leaders who represent movements and their leadership will draw its strength from the cause represented rather than from the overpowering individual. Many of the deficiencies in present-day leadership are due to the failure so far to make quick adjustments to social change and to the shortness of time for the evolution of new types. The South is far from being an exception to the rule.
