Papers of Thomas Johnson Michie, 1891, 1917-1967.

Michie's general correspondence contains letters to friends and business associates and describes family news, genealogy, travel arrangements, and civic activities. Of interest is a 1949 letter explaining his resignation from the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). Michie's business papers relate chiefly to his national and local investments and the management of the Michie Company, Charlottesville, Va. Professional papers include material regarding the American Bar Association Committee on Federal Estate and Gift Taxes. Michie's associations with the University of Virginia are represented by papers from Theta Delta Chi fraternity, the Law School Association, a seminar on estate planning, the Virginia 1857 Foundation to provide scholarships, and the 35th reunion of the class of 1921. The latter includes an alumni questionnaire filled out by Murrell Edmunds. Michie's service in the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation is represented by financial statements, curator's reports, and material regarding archaeological digs at Shadwell. There are routine military papers from World Wars I and II and the draft of a book on his role as an officer in AMGOT (Allied Military Government of Occupied Territory) in Sicily and Italy which describes similar incidents and at least one character fictionalized by John Hersey in "Bell for Adano." Correspondents include John Stewart Battle, Julian P. Boyd and John Haynes Holmes.
