William Armstrong Smith Papers

We are pleased to announce that the William Armstrong Smith Papers, 1966-1974, are now open for research. William Armstrong Smith was a Georgia state senator from the 34th District (Fulton County), from 1966 to 1974. The collection documents his career and to a lesser degree his campaigns as well as his continued interest in legislative matters after his senate career ended (1975-1978). An important aspect of the collection is correspondence Smith created after his senate career with Georgia politicians, including: Howard “Bo” Callaway, John J. Flynt, Jr., Wyche Fowler, Zell Miller, Sam Nunn, as well as with United States Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon.
