This series contains the records of John William Thurmond's legal career, material on the book Thurmond's Key Cases and agricultural ledgers recording tenant transactions such as rent payments; charges for food, household and farm supplies; and crop yields. The legal records are divided into cases and legal correspondence. The cases (1913-1934) deal primarily with oil, railroad, lumber, insurance, coal and granite companies and the South Carolina Highway Department and also include accident, bankruptcy, criminal (such as murder) cases, divorce, estates, foreclosures, loans and wills. There is a rough alphabetical index for cases from 1930-1934, maintained by John William Thurmond. The legal correspondence not only contains letters concerning cases (including fragments of cases not listed in the index) and other legal subjects, such as alimony, child custody, mortgages, naturalization, pardons and paroles; it also includes political correspondence, some items on genealogy and the Thurmond family and letters relating to supplying Thurmond's tenant farmers.
