White Southern migration to the North and West in the 20th century

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?

Only from Appalachia?
I only know about those from Appalachia. In the mid 1980s I spent an entire summer, as part of my university studies, taking classes and doing an internship in eastern KY. This information I was taught by the professor.
