1 Title:   Hand family and business records  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Hand, Judson Larrabee, 1851-1916  
  Dates:   1872-1985  
This collection contains the business and personal records of the Hand family of Pelham, Georgia and reflects the status of South Georgia's agricultural economy from the end of Reconstruction to the early 1980s. Initial success in land speculation, farming, and timber and turpentine production during the late 19th to early 20th centuries led Judson Larrabee (J. L.) Hand to establish the Hand Trading Company, a company that would become southwest Georgia's largest mercantile business and spur his expansion into banking, railroads, textiles, and fertilizer manufacture. The collection is comprised of the deeds, financial records, and correspondence of the Hand family's many businesses; political papers relating to Frederick Barrow Hand, Sr.'s terms in the Georgia General Assembly from 1933 to 1955 and his 1954 gubernatorial primary campaign; photographs of J. L. Hand's businesses, employees, and home, as well as Fred Hand, Sr.'s political career; and Fred Hand, Sr.'s genealogical records.
