Abstract:

Papers, 1924-1965, consisting of correspondence, letters, telegrams, memoranda, advertisements, speeches, clippings, photographs, minutes, platforms, resolutions, lists, reports, receipts, budgets, scrapbooks, maps, and published materials.

These papers center on the political life, and to a lesser extent, the personal life of Dixon. The political life of Dixon is particularly well documented, including his two campaigns for the governor's office of Ala. in 1934 and 1938, and his involvement in the Dixiecrat movement from 1948 into the 1950's. Correspondence and letters, numerous speeches, and campaign materials, all describe Dixon's and many others activities in great detail.

His personal life, particularly his membership in various clubs and organizations, is also well documented, especially his activities in the American Bar Association and the Redstone Club of Birmingham, Ala.

There are also several speeches and some campaign literature that document Bibb Graves' campaign for governor in 1934.

Among the prominent correspondents with a significant amount of material in the Dixon papers are: Governors Homer M. Adkins of Ark.; Ellis Arnall of Ga.; Ross B. Barrett of Miss.; J. Melville Broughton of N.C.; James E. Folsom of Ala.; Spessard L. Holland of Fla.; Paul B. Johnson of Miss.; Sam H. Jones of La.; Robert S. Kerr of Okla.; Thomas E. Kilby of Ala.; Ben Laney of Ark.; John Patterson and Gordon Persons of Ala.; Leverett Saltonstall of Mass.; Chauncey Sparks of Ala.; J. Strom Thurmond of S.C.; William M. Tuck of Va.; George C. Wallace of Ala., and Fielding Wright of Miss.; U.S. Senators include: John H. Bankhead, Owen Brewster, Harry F. Byrd, James O. Eastland, Walter F. George, Lister Hill, Spessard L. Holland, and John Sparkman.

U.S. Representatives include: George W. Andrews, Laurie C. Battle, Frank W. Boykin, George Grant, Sam Hobbs, George Huddleston, Robert E. Jones, and Albert Rains. Ala. politicians include: G. Claiborne Blanton, Albert Boutwell, Frank R. Broadway, C.J. Coley, Eugene "Bull" Connor, Sam Englehardt, Walter Givhan, Walter B. Jones, Thomas S. Lawson, Norvelle R. Leigh, Jr.; Gessner T. McCorvey, Ed Leigh McMillan, Albert Patterson, Marion Rushton, and Horace C. Wilkinson.

Ayers of The Anniston Star; Virginius Dabney of the Richmond Times-Dispatch; John Temple Graves of the Birmingham Age-Herald; Grover C. Hall, Jr., of the Montgomery Advertiser; Horace Hall of The Dothan Eagle; Clarence and Victor Hanson of The Birmingham News; Barrett C. Shelton of the Decatur Daily News; Cash M.
