Abstract:

The collection consists chiefly of Muse's correspondence and speeches on Virginia political issues, particularly the adoption of social security in the 1930s and massive resistance in the 1950s.

Much of the latter correspondence came in response to his column "Virginia Affairs" for the Washington Post, his Manassas Messenger editorials, and articles in national magazines. Other topics include his break with the Democratic Party in 1936, his gubernatorial candidacy in 1941, and his research in Virginia for Presidential Nominating Politics in 1952. Several chapters of an autobiography are included.

Scrapbooks of news clippings and a copy of Tarheel Tommy Atkins complete the collection. Correspondents include John Stewart Battle, Frank Bane, Sarah-Patton Boyle, Harry Flood Byrd, Sr., Harry F. Byrd, Jr., Lenoir Chambers, Virginius Dabney, Theodore Roosevelt Dalton, Colgate Whitehead Darden, and Leslie W. Dunbar.

Other correspondents are Patrick Henry Drewry, Edwin B. Henderson, Oliver Hill, Francis Pickens Miller, George Campbell Peery, James Price, Howard Worth Smith, Thomas Bahnson Stanley, Henry Alexander Wise, and many Virginia legislators.
