Nash and Taggart Collection

 

Conducting research for their book Mississippi Politics: The Struggle for Power, 1976-2006, authors Jere Nash and Andy Taggart recorded 84 oral interviews with 60 individuals, whose numbers included governors, members of Congress, state legislators, state officials, state party leaders, political candidates, staff members, lawyers, and lobbyists. The subject of discussions range from state political parties, national and state elections, individual politicians, educational reform, the state highway program, gambling, tort reform, and reapportionment.

The authors conducted several additional interviews for the second edition, Mississippi Politics: The Struggle for Power 1976-2008 , which included a new chapter on recent development.

The collection also includes transcripts prepared for the authors for 38 of the recordings. Warning note: researchers should only use the transcripts as a guide, since spelling errors and other inaccuracies are frequent.

The preservation of recordings in this collection is the result of a project supported in part by a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed on this website do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Note: access to this collection is restricted. Researchers may only access the recordings onsite within the University of Mississippi Libraries.
