Abstract:

The majority of this collection is comprised of images of Lester Maddox during his tenure as governor, and lieutenant governor of Georgia. Also included are campaign events during his run for mayor of Atlanta, and governor and lieutenant governor of Georgia. Most of the campaign photographs were produced during his run for lieutenant governor and were taken at events in rural Georgia. There are several photographs of Maddox riding on bicycles and speaking to crowds. Many of the photographs depict supporters holding signs that read ⁰́This is Maddox Country⁰́₊. The collection also includes rare interior and exterior images of Maddox's restaurant, the Pickrick and his employees. Some of the photographs were taken shortly after Maddox closed the restaurant and depict signs he made to register his protests against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. There are many images of people in the entertainment industry and in politics pictured with Maddox, mostly during his tenure as governor and lieutenant governor. Included are baseball player Hank Aaron, musicians Johnny Cash and Graham Jackson, and Georgia politicians, including Jimmy Carter, Zell Miller, Sonny Perdue, Ivan Allen, Jr., Charlie Brown, and Mugsy Smith. Also included are civil rights leaders, Hosea Williams, Joseph Lowery, and President Lyndon Johnson. The collection includes a 1934 group photograph of employees of Atlantic Steel Company in Atlanta that includes Maddox and also his employee identification card when he worked at Bell Aircraft in Buffalo, New York. There are also several images of Virginia Maddox in the collection. Copies of hand-written and typed notes, some signed by Lester Maddox and containing contextual information about particular photographs from his perspective are included with the prints.
