  Contents:  
In March of 1943, the Georgia General Assembly passed a resolution sponsored by Governor Ellis Arnall, for a commission of twenty-three members to revise the state's constitution. The new constitution was submitted to the Georgia General Assembly in January of 1945 and approved by the people of Georgia in a special election on 7 August 1945. This collection consists of records of the Georgia State Commission to revise the Constitution from 1943 to 1945. Included are typescript proceedings that illustrate revisions of the 1877 Georgia Constitution. These were edited by Dr. Albert Berry Saye, a professor at the University of Georgia and a leading authority on state and federal constitutional law. Also included are brief biographical sketches of the twenty-three members of the commission.
