NaWiPoMo: Wilton Harmaker

Wilton Harmaker is a contemporary North American writer. He is the author of The Genesis of Twentieth Century North America, which was published in Burgoyne in 1970.

Sobel quotes a passage from Harmaker on the state of race relations in the C.N.A. at the time of the Chapultepec Incident and the rise of the Friends of Black Mexico and the League for Brotherhood: "North America resolved its racial problems by denying contact between the races. If the Wilkins area of Michigan City was the Negro section of that industrial complex, then Southern Vandalia was the Negro section of the nation."

It seems likely that Harmaker is a faculty member at Burgoyne University, though Sobel describes him simply as a writer.
