Abstract:

This series functioned to inform the governor of the transactions of the Board of Inspector of the Penitentiary, and later the Board of Inspectors of Convicts. The 1845-1855 annual reports detailed financial transactions, crimes of convicts, counties in which convicted, nativity, and sickness. These early reports are all photocopies. The 1866-1868 reports listed names of convicts as well as their offenses, term, age, height, previous occupation, nativity, when received into the prison system, as well as the county in which convicted, and conduct.

From 1869-1877 these reports were made annually, but gave essentially the same information as the 1866-1868 report. From 1880-1906, the reports became biennial. From 1880-1890 the reports were very detailed. Contractors using convicts were named as well as how many convicts the contractor employed, and the number of escapes from prison. The warden, John H. Bankhead, the chaplain, H. Clay Taul, and the physician, Russell M. Cunningham, submitted narrative and statistical reports. Accounts with contractors were given in great detail also. Deaths and causes of death were treated in significant detail as well. There are a number of special reports and tables. Of special interest is the 1882 "History of the Penitentiary," in the 1884-1886 report. The 1892-1906 reports gave basically the same information, but with less detail.

Some of the more important contractors included: Charles T. Pollard, Thomas Williams, Pratt Saw Mill Co., Comer & McCurdy, Pratt Coal and Iron Co., Blount Springs, J.W. Comer, J.W. Hardie, Smith & Pace, J.F.B. Jackson, N.J. Stallworth, B.B. Comer, Farris & McCurdy, Warrior Coal & Coke Co., R.J. Thornton, Sloss-Sheffied Steel and Iron Co., and Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Co.

Inspectors included R.H. Dawson, A.T. Henley, W.D. Lee, William S. Kyle, F. McLemore, and R.J. Harrison, among others.
