Scope and Contents

The collection contains letters and telegraphs written between 1934 and 1947 by Senators Pat Harrison and Theodore G. Bilbo, Governor Fielding L. Wright, J. Walter Terry, or representatives of these men. The documents were addressed to or on the subject of R. Ingram Tullos, who evidently served as a county organizer during the election campaigns of the 1930s and 1940s. Some of the correspondence concerns Tullos' assistance with Bilbo's Senatorial campaigns of 1934 and 1946 as well as with Wright's 1947 gubernatorial bid. Several letters are requests or recommendations for jobs with the U.S. government.
