Gavin Stevens mentions "the Swiss" in passing during his lengthy monologue about race in Chapter 7 of Intruder in the Dust: after telling his nephew that the white South, "alone in the United States," is "a homogeneous people," he compares them to the "the Swiss" - they too are homogeneous, but there are not "enough" of them to matter, adding that they "are not a people so much as a neat clean quite solvent business" (150).
