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.
