Dates: 1918-2000). 88.25 cubic feet.
Correspondence, personal papers, literary manuscripts, and
publications concerning the Carters and their careers.
Hodding Carter (1907-1972) was born in Louisiana and
attended Bowdoin College and the Columbia University School
of Journalism. He began his career in journalism in the
1920's as a reporter in Jackson, Mississippi, and New
Orleans, Louisiana. Carter and Betty Werlein of New Orleans
were married in 1931, and soon after started their own
newspaper, the Hammond (Louisiana) Courier. With
Hodding as editor and Betty as business manager, the
Courier consistently opposed the rule of Huey Long.
Hodding Carter ran for the House of Representatives in 1935
after Long's death, but was defeated. In 1936, at the
invitation of William Alexander Percy, the Carters moved to
Greenville, Mississippi and set up the Delta Star.
Two years later the Star was merged to form the
Delta Democrat-Times. Carter was best known after
World War II for his editorials, magazine articles, books,
and speeches advocating racial justice in the south.
Carter's 1946 series urging racial tolerance earned him the
Pulitzer Prize. In 1954, the Mississippi House of
Representatives voted him a "liar" for his articles on the
Citizens' Councils. The Carter papers document the important
events and social movements to which the Carters were
witnesses or participants, such as the political careers of
Huey Long and Theodore Bilbo, World War II, the Office of
War Information, the rise of the Citizen's Councils in the
1950's, the integration of the University of Mississippi in
1962, and changes in race relations throughout the country.
Hodding Carter (1907-1972) was the owner of the Hammond
(La.) Courier and the Delta Star (Greenville, Miss.), which
later became the Delta Democrat-Times. Among other important
social and political events of the time, the Carter papers
document the rise of the Citizen's Councils in the 1950s,
the integration of the University of Mississippi in 1962,
and changes in race relations throughout the country.
