In this interview, he shares his opinions on integration and race relations in Georgia. Talmadge, who opposed integration, claims that he did so to avoid tensions. He maintains that had the federal government stayed out of the South, states like Georgia would have integrated slowly but surely and with significantly less strife151ocn263436369file20070.82Talmadge, Herman EOral history interview with Herman Talmadge, December 18, 1975 interview A-0331-3, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007)InterviewsThis is the third interview in a three-part series with Senator Herman Talmadge of Georgia. In this interview, Talmadge offers his reaction to issues in America during the 1970s. He offers his thoughts on the then recent disclosures regarding J. Edgar Hoover's abuse of power and those of the CIA and the FBI. Other topics include President Gerald Ford's pardoning of Richard Nixon, lessons to be learned from the failures of the Vietnam War, and the issue of race in American politics. The remainder of the interview is devoted to looking back on his and his father's political legacies in Georgia. In particular, he discusses why he considered leaving the Senate and running for Governor in 1966; the building of a political coalition from former political rivals and Georgia businessmen; his publication on segregation, You and Segregation; and the lack of personal and professional papers for both him and his father. He concludes the interview with some brief remarks regarding the importance of objectivity in historical analysis151ocn244565494file20060.82Talmadge, Herman EOral history interview with Herman Talmadge, July 15 and 24, 1975 interview A-0331-1, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007)InterviewsThis is the first interview in a three-part series with Herman Talmadge, who served as governor of Georgia from 1948 to 1955 before going to the United States Senate from 1957 until 1981. The son of Governor Eugene Talmadge, Herman Talmadge discusses his early career in politics and his perception of Southern politics during the mid-twentieth century. Talmadge begins the interview by reflecting on his first awareness of political issues when he helped to campaign for his father during the mid-1920s. In discussing his father's political career (Eugene Talmadge first served as the Commissioner of Agriculture in Georgia before serving as governor 1933-1937 and 1941-1943), Talmadge places his father within the changing social and political landscape of Georgia. Following his father's unexpected death in December 1946 just after having been elected governor again that same year, the younger Talmadge was elected by the legislature to fill his father's seat. His election, however, was highly contested and soon became a notorious scandal dubbed the "three governors controversy" (referred to by Talmadge here as the "Two Governors Row"). Although he firmly believed that he had been rightfully placed in office by the General Assembly, Talmadge was forced out of office by a Georgia Supreme Court ruling before returning in 1948, having been elected in his own right. In discussing that initial gubernatorial campaign, as well as his subsequent campaigns, Talmadge emphasizes the importance of his father's legacy in his own political career, the growing importance of race in Southern politics, his thoughts on his political rivals and colleagues, and his relationship with the press. Talmadge also discusses his decision to run for the United States Senate and his growing prominence in national politics during the 1960s and 1970s151ocn244565848file20060.82Talmadge, Herman EOral history interview with Herman Talmadge, July 29 and August 1, 1975 interview A-0331-2, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007)InterviewsThis is the second interview in a three-part series with Senator Herman Talmadge of Georgia. In the first interview, Talmadge focused primarily on his early career in politics and his tenure as Governor of Georgia from 1948 to 1955. In this interview, Talmadge shifts his focus to his years in the United States Senate. First elected in 1956, Talmadge had just entered his fourth term at the time the interview was conducted in 1975. Talmadge begins by describing the split in the Democratic Party in 1964. In explaining his belief that there was room for variation and diversity along the conservative-liberal spectrum in both major political parties, Talmadge contends that he never seriously considered leaving the Democratic Party during those years. In addition, Talmadge offers his assessment of key political figures. He compares the leadership styles and accomplishments of presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford, and he offers his perception of leaders such as George Wallace, Ralph Nader, George McGovern, and Eugene McCarthy. Throughout the interview, Talmadge pays particular attention to issues of civil rights, the environment, consumerism, and the growing relationship between television and politics. In addition, Talmadge offers his views on the role of federal government, the changing social problems facing Americans during the mid-1970s, and his reaction to the Watergate scandal and its impact on politics111ocn001995863book19540.29Jordan, Arna RDreams come true : [Accomplishments of Governor Herman Talmadge51ocn822057879com20120.74The quest for labor equality in household work National Domestic Workers Union, 1965-1979Archives"The collection consists of records of the [National] Domestic Workers Union (U.S) from 1965-1979.

During the Nixon administration this involved an attempt to readjust regional Forest Service boundaries to align with a proposed ten region reorganization of many departments. Mike Mansfield, Alan Bible, and Herman Talmadge held key roles in preventing changes. During the Carter administration there was an attempt to form a Department of Natural Resources that also met with senatorial opposition.

Hartsfield photograph collectionWilliam Berry Hartsfield (1890-1971) served as Mayor of Atlanta for six terms (1937-1941, 1942-1961), longer than any other mayor in the history of the city. During that period, the city grew from 100,000 people to a metropolitan population of one million. Hartsfield believed that the future of the city lay in air transportation and took the lead in promoting it throughout his career. Also, he developed a gradualist approach to improving race relations and was a leader in building the city's reputation as "A City Too Busy to Hate." Hartsfield was educated in Atlanta public schools but did not finish high school or attend college. He married Pearl Williams in 1913 and they had two children, William Berry Jr. and Mildred. The marriage ended in divorce in 1962. Hartsfield married Tollie Bedenbaugh Tolan later in 1962 and adopted her son, Carl. While working as a clerk with an Atlanta law firm, beginning in 1925, Hartsfield studied, in his spare time, law books and publications. He had gained the necessary knowledge by 1927 to be admitted to the Georgia Bar. Ending his political career in 1961, he died in 1971. A week later, the city honored him by naming the Atlanta airport the "William B. Hartsfield International Airport" (renamed the "Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport" in 2003)Thu Oct 16 15:43:50 EDT 2014batch40784
