Found in 10 Collections and/or Records:
The Clippings series, 1962 to 2006, is primarily concerned with elections, legislation, contemporary issues affecting the state and the nation, and people of interest to the DPSC.
The Ernest F. Hollings files contain Workman’s notes from Hollings’ gubernatorial press conferences, 1959-1961, gubernatorial campaign of 1958, and primary campaign for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in 1962 (including transcripts of television appearances). The George Bell Timmerman and Donald Russell files also contain gubernatorial press conference notes and speeches.
Clippings, 1953-2016, are topically arranged. Many feature stories written by Bass and reflect his study of Southern politics and civil rights. Also, the Publications files contain research materials and reviews for several Bass works.
At the University of Mississippi, Bass chaired the Journalism Department Chair Search Committee, in addition to teaching. In 1993, Bass drafted faculty senate legislation calling for an end to the playing of “Dixie” at university events. Papers from the ensuing controversy include correspondence and the university senate act.
