Abstract:

This is a collection of the personal papers of Jim L. Waits, most of which predates his time as Dean at Candler School of Theology. Included in the collection is Dean Waits curriculum vitae written in 1990 while still at Candler. The bulk of the series involves the "Born of Conviction" pro-desegregation statement of twenty-eight young Methodist Ministers in Mississippi in December of 1962. Included is the "Born of Conviction" statement, correspondence regarding the statement, sermons, clippings, and other publications concerning the declaration. Also included in the collection is Waits' Masters Thesis submitted to the University of Chicago in 1967. The thesis is titled "Civil Disobedience and Obligation to the State" and includes his notes along with multiple drafts. There are also materials pertaining to race discussions that took place at Millsaps College, at which time Waits served as the Student Body President.
