Ibra C. Blackwood papers, 1926-1932.

Political pamphlet, ca. 1926, promoting Blackwood's unsuccessful bid for governor of South Carolina in the 1926 campaign, "the tax burden on agriculture is not too heavy... and should be lightened." Letter, 3 October 1932, from Blackwood, in Columbia, S.C., to Col. Leopold Philipp, in New York City. Gov. Blackwood comments on the presidential campaign of Franklin D. Roosevelt, "Thus far his tactics indicate that he is a thoughtful, resourceful, sincere man and it is my humble opinion that he is going to be elected President by the largest majority that any President ever received...," acknowledging that S.C. was a state that would vote for the Democratic candidate, "I have advised against waging a campaign struggle in any state that was fairly sure to go Democratic," and suggesting in which states the party should concentrate its efforts; expressing appreciation for the hospitality extended by Philipp during Blackwood's recent visit to New York, commending Jim Farley's skills as campaign manager, "he has done a lot of sensible things and has not, to my knowledge and judgment, 'pulled a bone' yet," and updating Philipp on status of their mutual friend, Alva M. Lumpkin, following a serious car wreck in Greensboro, N.C.
