Collection Description

Historical Note

Merritt Bloodworth Pound (1898-1970) was a longtime Georgia native and an alumnus of the University of Georgia. After he earned his Ph.D in History at the University of North Carolina, Pound returned to Athens and joined the UGA faculty where he taught History. In 1939, he became the first head of the Political Science Department, a position he held for 25 years.

Scope and Content

This collection (1918-1965) is composed of both Pound's administrative reference files and his personal records. The materials include such items as lecture notes, photographs and sample Georgia voting ballots from 1930 through 1948. Of particular interest is Pound's scrapbook covering the Georgia Conference on Atomic Energy from 1946.
