Papers of A.E.S. Stephens [mixed materials] : 1949-1961.

The A.E.S. Stephens papers date from 1949 to 1961 and principally relate to his unsuccessful campaign for governor of Virginia from December 1960, until his loss to Albertis Harrison in the Democratic primary in July 1961. The papers dealing with the campaign period reflect Stephens' stand on various campaign issues, and the frustrations of his attempt to win the Democratic nomination against the opposition of the Byrd organization. The majority of the papers prior to the 1960-1961 primary race focus on the issue of Massive Resistance to racial integration in Virginia schools and date back to the early 1950s. The collection does not contain Stephens' private papers or records of his service in the Virginia General Assembly or as Lieutenant Governor.
