2 Title:   George Hiley and Pansy Aiken Slappey collection  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Slappey, George H. (George Hiley)  
  Dates:   1851-1977  
The collection highlights include manuscripts of both published and unpublished works relating directly to the problems facing Georgia education, educational reform, and the public school system operation. Also included are the scrapbook and notes made by the Slappeys when they served as Georgia delegates to the World Organization of the Teaching Profession in Glasgow, Scotland in August 1947. There are genealogical source materials on the Slappey, Aiken, Shi, Hollis, Singleton, Howard and allied families. Included are two miniatures of Mr. Slappey's maternal grandparents, painted in 1851 by William Frey. Mrs. Slappey's interest in Jimmy Carter's presidential aspirations is apparent in the detailed campaign scrapbooks kept by her, which are a part of this collection. In addition, the collection contains other clippings of articles on educational, political, and historical matters relating to the Slappeys. There is a small amount of correspondence with various educators and civic leaders. The first Japanese edition of Gone With the Wind (volume one only), presented by John Marsh to George Slappey (a former roommate in Kentucky) is housed with the Margaret Mitchell Marsh collection.
