This is a historical treatise of the progress of the Rural Electrification Administration and the development of the Navarro County Electric Co-op. It points out the struggle the REA encounted before it was organized, and a comprehensive study of the growth and development of the Navarro County Electric Co-op for a period of ten years.
It is the purpose of this thesis to show: 1. The Role of the Rural Electrification Administration in the development of rural areas. 2. To prove that the Rural Electrification Administration has been an asset to the American common-wealth rather than a liability. 3. To show the accomplishments of a cooperative unit as a service organization. 4. To show the status of the farm population now as compared to 1935, and the availability of modern house-hold equipment in the farm home today as compared with that of the city home.
Data for this thesis were secured in the following manner: 1. From books, pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, official publications, and the Congressional Record. 2. Questionnaires, and personal interviews.
