61 Title:   Harry Lowrance Brown biographical papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Brown, Harry Lowrance, 1888-1984  
  Dates:   circa 1900-1984  
  Contents:  
The collection includes papers found among the papers of J. Aubrey Smith (collection UGA 08-007) which were transferred from the University of Georgia Walter J. Brown Media Archive to the University Archives in 2008. Harry Brown recorded an account of his life and career, aided by his friends, Rosslyn Smith and her husband, University of Georgia Agricultural Extension film maker, J. Aubrey Smith. Judging from a note enclosed with the tape cassettes, it appears that Ms. Smith interviewed Brown and used the lengthy taped interview to develop the typed text for his approval. Brown covers events in his life and his perspective on agricultural life in the first half of the 20th century. He also discusses the operations of the many government operations in which he played a role. In addition to a finished manuscript of his memoir, this collection includes early drafts and outlines, notes, correspondence and both tapes of the interview with Brown and a transcript of the tapes.

70 Title:   Janet B. Scarborough Merritt Papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Merritt, Janet B. Scarborough, 1909-2000.  
  Dates:   1900-2011  
  Contents:  
Janet B. Scarborough Merritt was elected to represent the Sumter County (at the time, the 68th district) in the Georgia State House in 1964. The only woman in the Georgia State House of Representatives when she was elected, and the first to represent Sumter County, Merritt called herself a "full-time" representative. The topic of the role of women in government is thoroughly documented throughout Merritt's speeches and writings. She served four terms in that position: she was elected again in 1966, in 1968 (after reapportionment combined Sumter with Macon and Schley counties into the new 46th district), and in 1970. In 1972, after a second reapportionment, Merritt was defeated for re-election by her former colleague in the House, Oliver Oxford, in a run-off. Merritt ran against Oxford a second time in the 1974 election, but was again narrowly defeated in a run-off. The collection documents Merritt's campaigns, her time in the state legislature and her community activities including heavy involvement in the Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) Of particular note are materials documenting Merritt's ongoing battle to change Georgia's state flag. In 1969, Merritt sponsored a bill to change the Georgia flag adopted in 1955, shortly after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling, back to the 1879 version, which did not include the Confederate battle flag. Included in the collection are speeches, notes, journals, correspondence, clippings, photographs, artifacts, and audiovisual material.

For example, at his direction, research and strategy files from the 1960 civil rights debates are located here. Miscellaneous has a significant amount of correspondence from personal friends. Trips contains correspondence and material on all of Senator Russell's trips including those made in his capacity as a member or chairman of a senate committee. For example, correspondence and material from Russell's 1943 global tour of the war front as chairman of a special senate committee to investigate overseas military bases demonstrate the senator's work on such assignments. During many of these overseas trips prior to 1950, Russell had very revealing correspondence with his mother, which is included. Trips are filed under year in which they were made. If more than one trip was made within a year, the trips were filed alphabetically by country within the year.
