I know all about the Great Migration of African-Americans out of the Southern U.S. between 1910 and 1970 (in 1910, 89% of U.S. Blacks lived in the South; by 1970, this figure was just 53%). However, was there likewise a large-scale migration of Southern Whites into the Northern and Western U.S. during this time? Or did few White Southerners migrate out of the South during this time?
