We are pleased to announce that the Harold Paulk Henderson, Sr. Oral History Collection, 1981-1994, is now open for research. The collection consists of oral history interviews conducted by Harold Paulk (Hal) Henderson, Sr., during his research for two monographs, The Politics of Change in Georgia: A Political Biography of Ellis Arnall (1991) and Ernest Vandiver, Governor of Georgia (2000). Series I documents the life of Georgia governor Ellis G. Arnall (1943-1947), the 1966 Georgia gubernatorial election, and U.S. Senator Herman E. Talmadge, his father (Eugene) and family, and politics in Georgia. Series II documents the political and personal life of Georgia governor S. Ernest Vandiver, Jr. (1959-1963) and includes discussion of notable events from his gubernatorial administration, such as public school integration and the Sibley Commission. This collection joins over 120 collections documenting public policymaking and political culture centered in Georgia available for research here at the Russell Library.
