Bankhead, John Hollis, 1872-1946. Papers, 1880-1947 and n.d.

Papers, 1880-1947 and n.d.

Papers, 1880-1947 and n.d., containing correspondence, letters, telegrams, biographical records, genealogical records, financial records, invitations, photographs, a diploma, campaign records, speeches, a script, voting records, bills and resolutions proposed by the U.S. Congress, hearings, reports, clippings, memoranda, subject files, diagrams, press releases, and other materials. This collection documents the life of Bankhead (1872-1946), particularly that part of his career in the U.S. Senate involving agriculture and farm tenancy. Other aspects of his senatorial career are not as well documented. His personal life and political campaigns also are represented, as is his work in 1940 with the Democratic National Committee. There are several good photographs of the former Senator, however, as well as other family members. Of interest are the folders of correspondence between Bankhead (1872-1946) and his sister, Marie B. Owen. U.S. and Ala. political, economic, and social issues are discussed in great detail, as is the Ala. Dept. of Archives and History. Also of interest are the "turtle" letters to his granddaughter Louise B. Davis, written while Bankhead (1872-1946) recovered from illness in 1936-1937.
