Abstract:

A Democrat, Bobby Moak represented District 93 and District 53 in the Mississippi House of Representatives from 1984 to 2016. He chaired the Investigate State Offices Committee in 2000-2003 and the Gaming Committee from 2004 to 2011. Moak served as Democratic Minority Leader from 2012 to 2016.

The collection contains material related to his service in public office and his political campaigns. The contents of the Legislature Series will include correspondence with constituents, lobbyists, colleagues, staff, as well as communications from other state, regional, and national politicians. It also includes clippings, memoranda, drafts of bills, and reports on a variety of public policy and political issues with an emphasis on subject matter that falls under the jurisdiction of Moak's committee memberships (see biographical note above). The Campaign Series documents news coverage, communications with constituents, voter and donor lists, and other facets of running for office. Due to his chairmanship of the Gaming Committee from 2004 to 2011, the collection is a rich resource for casinos and gambling in Mississippi during this period. Moak shared an apartment in Jackson with freshman legislator John Grisham and helped the future bestselling author to sell the initial printing of his first novel, A Time to Kill. Grisham dedicated his 2009 short story anthology Ford County to Moak. The Moak Collection contains evidence of their continued friendship scattered throughout the collection.
