Abstract:

Correspondence, articles, a diary, postcards, printed material, clippings, notes, a volume, and pictures. This collection primarily contains Firor's personal and family correspondence, although to a lesser extent these papers reveal his career as a professor, author, and farmer. Firor began as a horticulturist prior to World War I and then developed his interests to become a southern agricultural economist, teaching at the University of Georgia. A major concern for him was Georgia crops, including especially peacans and peaches, but also watermelons, tomatoes, Irish potatoes, and apples. Fertilizer tests, diseases, expansion and economics of the farming industry, the coming of the boll weevil, distribution of news about farm prices, and farm problems were aspects of the field in which he was interested. The Correspondence Series comprises over one-half of the collection.

This series includes pre-World War I letters to Firor, his World War I letters from France and AEF University in Beaune, letters between him and Mary Valentine Moss until their marriage, letters about World War II and post-war change at the University of Georgia College of Agriculture, and correspondence in the 1950s between Firor and his daughter Anne Firor Scott. Prominent individuals represented in the Correspondence Series include Reuben "Shorty" Brigham (late 1940s), Harmon Caldwell (late 1940s), Paul Wilber Chapman (1940s), William Mauzy Kemper (ca. 1908-1914), and Anne Firor Scott (1949-1961). The Writings and speeches Series, the second largest series, includes writings of Firor on a variety of southern agricultural topics. The Subject Files Series includes files on the Moss and Firor families as well as a folder for Anne Firor Scott.
