Papers of Armistead Lloyd Boothe [manuscript] 1948-69.

Boothe's papers are almost entirely political. The majority deal with 1950s Virginia school desegregation, and contain correspondence, official reports, publications, questionaires, legislative bills, petitions, and Boothe's memos on Brown vs. the Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas, massive resistance, interposition, the Stanley plan, the Gray report, the Boothe-Dalton plan, and the Perrow report. Other Virginia state senate papers cover the topics of appropriations, redistricting, the revision of the Virginia code of statute law, and the repeal of the poll tax. There is also some material from Boothe's U.S. Senate campaign in 1966, his Va. state senate and lt. governor campaigns, 1953-61, and his work for the Kennedys in 1960 and 1968. Among the correspondents are James Lindsay Almond, William Cullen Battle, Edward L. Breeden, Harry Flood Byrd, Albertis Sydney Harrison, Claudia Alta (Taylor) Johnson, and Absolam Willis Robertson.
