This series consists of a single manuscript, produced by the Federal Writers Project of North Carolina in the late 1930s or the early 1940s. Hamilton's connection to the manuscript is unclear, although he may be responsible for several editing marks on the document. "Gamblers All" tells the history of tobacco in North Carolina, and includes numerous oral histories of tobacco workers, both on farms and in factories. The manuscript is believed to be unpublished.
Edwin Bjorkman was the state supervisor of the project, and Wendell Brooks Phillips served as editor. Leonard Rapport wrote chapters two, four, six, and eight. Other writers noted on the manuscript are: Phillips, Almon Barbour, Dudley W. Crawford, Beth Cannady, Virginia Christine Anthony, Esther Searle Pinnix, Mary A. Hicks, David P. Allison, T. Pat Matthews, Claude V. Dunnagan, Edwin Massengill, Samuel E. Kluttz, N. C. Browder, Ann Marley, and Albert North.

Biographical Note

Charles Horace Hamilton was born on June 10, 1901 on a farm near Waco, Texas. He received his A.B. degree from Southern Methodist University in 1923, and received a masters degree from Texas A&M in 1925. Hamilton spent a year teaching at Lon Morris College in Jacksonville, Texas, followed by a year completing a teaching fellowship at the University of North Carolina. He then researched the rural church at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and completed a Social Science Research Council Fellowship at Harvard University from 1930 to 1931. Hamilton received a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of North Carolina in 1932.

His career with North Carolina State College began in 1931, when he started conducting research and teaching courses in rural sociology. Hamilton returned to Texas A&M in 1936 to teach and research rural sociology. In 1940, he was chosen to head the new Department of Rural Sociology at North Carolina State College, and he served as Professor and Head until 1960.

Hamilton was an extremely active researcher and professor. He conducted research and taught extensively on issues relating to rural people, ranging from population growth and migration to education and health care. He published a number of books, monographs, articles, and reports. He was an active member of a number of professional organizations, including the Population Association of America, the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, and the American Sociological Association's Committee on Marriage and Divorce Statistics. Hamilton twice took leaves of absence of North Carolina State. He spent 15 months during the years of 1945 and 1946 in Chicago conducting studies on the social and economic aspects of hospitals in the United States. He spent the school year of 1959 - 1960 as a visiting professor of Rural Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In 1958, Hamilton received the O. Max Gardner Award. In 1961, he was named a William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor. Hamilton continued to teach at State until 1967. After leaving North Carolina State, Hamilton served as Associate Director of the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina, until his retirement in 1971. In 1977, Hamilton was awarded the Watauga Medal, North Carolina State University's highest honor. Hamilton died on August 1, 1977.
