Abstract:

The Governor is the chief executive of the state whose function is to administer the laws of the state. One of the activities used to accomplish this function is the appointing of individuals to various state and local offices and the signing of grants and commissions.

This series consists of correspondence, telegrams, and applications relating to appointments, resignations and commissions for state and local government positions during the administration of Governor Chauncey Sparks. The series contains letters of recommendation and notices to the governor that a certain position is vacant. Most of the vacancies are due to the death or resignation of the officeholder. This series also contains the commission from the governor appointing the individual to a particular office.

Of special interest is the file containing correspondence and telegrams regarding the death of Senator John Hollis Bankhead. Sparks issued a proclamation calling for a special election on 1946 Nov. 7 to fill Bankhead's seat in Congress. The Governor also appointed individuals to head two new state agencies that were created by acts of the 1943 Legislature: the Department of Labor and the Alabama Aviation Commission. There is also correspondence recommending individuals to replace University of Alabama president Richard R. Paty who resigned from that post in 1947 Jan.
