Scope and Content Note

The series consists of notebooks written by Joe Cumming from 1961-1998. Notebooks include speeches and creative works, especially fiction and poems; diary entries; observations and quotes relating to Newsweek and freelance articles; and lesson plans and notes on teaching. The notebooks document Cumming's time as the Newsweek Atlanta Bureau Chief (1961-1979), as a student at Emory University's Institute for the Liberal Arts (ILA) and magazine writing instructor at Emory University (1979-1981), and as a professor for the University of West Georgia's Mass Communications and Theater Department (1981-1991). Topics in these notebooks include Cumming's studies; family life; professional life; and current events, such as the Civil Rights Movement and its subsequent effects on American education and social life from 1961-1998. Of particular note are the early notebooks covering 1961-1969 for their diary entries on the Civil Rights Movement and Cumming's professional career with Newsweek.
