Biographical Note

Jane Brevard Vandiver Kidd was born on February 12, 1953 in Atlanta Georgia. As the daughter of Georgia Governor S. Ernest Vandiver (1959-1963) and grand-niece of Senator Richard B. Russell, Jr., Kidd was involved in politics early, serving as chair of "Youth for Talmadge" during Herman Talmadge's 1968 Senate campaign, and campaigning for her father during his 1972 U.S. Senate campaign. In 1975, she graduated from the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and in 1980 she won a seat on the Lavonia, Georgia city council, which she retained for three terms. In 1992, she was Don Johnson's campaign manager during his successful run for Congress and served as Johnson's district director from 1993 to 1995. In 2004, Kidd was elected to represent the 115th District in the Georgia House of Representatives, serving one term before an unsuccessful bid for the Georgia State Senate in 2006. Kidd also served as chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia from 2007 to 2011.

In addition to her public service in state and local government, Kidd has also worked at WNEG-AM radio in Toccoa, Georgia and GPTV in Athens in the early 1970s, as Radio-TV Editor, Assistant Director for Special Projects, and then Director of Public Information at Clemson University (1976-1986), Vice President and Regional Office Director for the the public relations firm Gehrung Associates (1987-1990), Director of Development for the State Botanical Garden of Georgia (1996-2002), Director of Alumni Relations for the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication (2002-2004), and as president of the public relations firm, The Kidd Group. She has also served on the boards of several organizations including the Athens-Clarke County Clean and Beautiful Commission, Georgia Clean and Beautiful Citizen's Advisory Committee, Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation, Junior League of Athens, Girl Scouts of Northeast Georgia, and the University of Georgia's National Alumni Association.

Series IV. MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Successful Midlife Development (MIDMAC) Files

This series contains materials from the MacArthur Foundation supported Research Network on Successful Midlife Development (MIDMAC) project on physical and mental well-being for middle-aged adults conducted between 1990 and 1998. The materials range in date from 1992 to 1999 and include correspondence, contracts, questionnaires, reports, newsletters, press materials, and new clippings.
Jane Kidd served as a public information consultant for the Research Network on Successful Midlife Development (MIDMAC), a research project funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation between 1990 and 1998. The primary objective of the research project was to identify the major biomedical, psychological, and social factors that permit some people to achieve good health, psychological well-being, and social responsibility during their adult years. The MIDMAC research project involved a number of related studies, most notably the MIDUS (Midlife Development in the United States) Survey, a three-hour survey that consisted of more than 1,100 questions exploring 27 areas of midlife and involved a 45-minute telephone interview and mailed questionnaires taking 23 hours to complete. The survey was completed by 3,000 people thought to be a representative sample of the U.S. population ages 25 to 74. The results were the first comprehensive scientific description of "normal midlife" in the United States.
