Abstract:

Papers, 1920-1949, that contain correspondence, letters, telegrams, financial records, estate records, applications, subject files, military records, lists, photographs, clippings, printed records, licenses, and other records.

The most important series in this collection are the correspondence and letters, the subject files, and the patronage, political. In all of those series the political career of John H. Bankhead (1872-1946), and to a lesser extent, Lister Hill and Hugo L. Black are discussed. U.S. and Ala. politics receive much attention, especially the New Deal, unemployment, and the search for jobs through the patronage system.

Aspects of the New Deal covered especially well include farm tenancy and the Farm Security Administration, the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the court packing scheme of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the National Labor Relations Board.

Ala. subjects and political subjects covered especially well include: the beginning of radio station WSGN, U.S. political patronage in Ala., the grooming of Jim Simpson to unseat John H. Bankhead (1872-1946) in 1942, the campaign of William B. Bankhead for the presidency, 1940; and a plan to create the Ala. Medical College in Birmingham. Race relations in the U.S. Army, and the World War, 1939-1945, received extensive treatment also.
