The Blues, Black vaudeville, and the silver screen, 1912-1930s selections from the records of Macon's Douglass Theatre by Charles Henry Douglass ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The online collection consists of selected correspondence, financial records, contracts, and advertising materials from the Douglass Theatre's records in the Middle Georgia Archives' Charles Henry Douglass business records, and it documents the amusements available to Macon's African American population and the business dealings of this African American entrepreneur from 1912 to the 1930s. The bulk of these selected records feature the period between 1920 and 1929, and describe the sporting events, vaudeville, and films brought to the theater, as well as the efforts to ensure its financial success. Handbills and booking correspondence document Georgia-based fighters such as Tiger Flowers and Texas Tanner who sought to fight at the venue in 1927. Douglass and Ben Stein, a white businessman who assumed ownership of the theater between 1927 and 1929, were affiliated with the Theatre Owners Booking Association (T.O.B.A.), a vaudeville circuit. This gave them access to bring prominent acts to Macon's African American community, such as well-known blues musicians Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, comedians Butterbeans and Susie, as well as musicals, revues, and sacred theater. When not hosting live acts, the Douglass also exhibited a wide variety of sound and silent motion pictures. Selected records feature race films (movies made specifically for African American audiences) of producers such as the Norman Film Manufacturing Company and Oscar Micheaux. The selections highlight other Southern African American theaters, such as the Palace Theatre in Valdosta, Georgia, Liberty Theatre in Columbus, Georgia, and the Liberty Theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Web site also contains indexes to the documents, an introductory essay, a bibliography, the finding aid for Douglass's business records, and lists of related archival materials and Web sites

"Thar's gold in them thar hills" Gold and gold mining in Georgia, 1830s-1940s ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thar's Gold in Them Thar Hills": Gold and Gold Mining in Georgia, 1830s-1940s consists of selected legal, financial, and promotional documents as well as photographs and picture postcards that represent episodes of renewed interest in gold mining in Lumpkin County during Reconstruction, at the turn of the century, and during the Depression. Culled from three archival collections at the Lumpkin County Library of the Chestatee Regional Library System, the selected textual materials cover the late 1830s through the early 1940s, but focus primarily on the period between Reconstruction and the turn of the twentieth century. By contrast, the photographs and postcards depict mining methods employed from the 1900s through the 1940s along the Chestatee River, at the Findley Mill, and at the Lockhart Mine. Correspondence to Dahlonega attorney Weir Boyd documents the activities of the Rider Mine (1868-1883), the Yahoola and Cane Creek Hydraulic Mining Company (1868-1883), the Consolidated Mines (1879-1882), and the Phoenix Gold Mining company (1891-1892). In-depth descriptions of mining operations and techniques are found within the prospectuses of the Dahlonega Consolidated Gold Mining Company, the Dahlonega Gold Mining and Milling Company, and the Findley Gold Mining Company of Georgia. In addition, Memoranda of deposit from 1838 to 1905 document the Branch Mints in Dahlonega and Charlotte (N.C.). As these materials focus on the period after the Civil War, there is scant mention of area Native Americans, or the Cherokee Removal ("Trail of Tears"). The site also includes an essay about Georgia gold history, a bibliography, and lists of selected websites and related archival materials
