Series 5
Writings, 1889-2009 (bulk 1949-2009)
Boxes 26-39, 40, and AV1

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by Joe Cumming and others from 1889-2009. Cumming's writings include both published and unpublished works and are classified as fiction, fragments, nonfiction, poetry, and sheet music. Fiction works include short stories, skits, and drafts of a novel titled The Handbird [variant title: Op-Ed]. One piece, a 1975 speech titled "Sizemore," is written and delivered by Cumming from a fictional character's perspective. Two pieces are written under the pseudonym Vincent Shaler: "Christmas Present" and "The Sigh." Nonfiction works include essays, broadcast scripts, speeches, tributes, drafts of a newsletter titled "Bells and Buzzers," and drafts of the book Bylines: Selected Articles, Columns and Poems 1963-1995. "Tales from Tamworth" includes born digital material. Poetry is typically unpublished and personal in nature but also includes "A Toast to 'The Boyfriend,'" a piece published in Carroll County Cultural Arts Alliance. Sheet music includes music and lyrics written for Cumming's community theater projects as well as personal songs written and performed for friends and family. Published works are described with the title and date of publication. These works include articles, columns, and letters to the editors printed in Esquire, Times-Georgian, Perspective, St. Margaret's Newsletter, System Magazine, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Suwanee News, Atlanta Weekly, Athens Observer, Atlanta, Newsweek, West Georgian, and Harper's.

Cumming covered topics including WWII; American culture from the 1930s through 1990s; the Civil Rights Movement; education; literature, journalism, writing, publishing, and authors; the visual and performing arts; and cultural events in Georgia, often associated with Universities like Emory and Agnes Scott or cities like Carrollton and Augusta. He also wrote personal pieces about family, friends, and other associates. Occasionally, Cumming uses the same title for disparate works, such as the two "Liberal Arts" essays from 1982 and 1988.

Writings by others include typescripts that Cumming created from writings by W.B. Yeats, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Wallace Stevens, John Crowe Ransom, Evelyn Waugh, Thomas Wolfe, Christopher Morley, William Johnson Cory, E.A. Robinson, James Neely Grant, George Santayana, and Richard Wilbur. Also included are unpublished works given to Cumming as gifts or for his review by Doug Cumming, Bill F. Hensley, Ellen Wilson, Thom Slaughter, Paul Hemphill, Emily Cumming, Benjamin Griffith, Al Braselton, Sue Sigmon Williams, Allen Joyce, and Miriam Kiser.

Arrangement Note

Arranged in alphabetical order by type. Born digital materials currently available to researchers are taken from two 3.5" floppy disks. Disk images were created using a KryoFlux and FTK Imager. Master copies of these images were ingested into a Fedora instance at Emory University for long-term preservation. Individual files were extracted using FTK Imagers and scanned for viruses using McAfee anti-virus software. The thirteen extracted files consist of an OpenOffice file and Jpeg images. The OpenOffice file was migrated to PDF for access and use copies were made of the other files in their original format. Files are arranged in original order by disk and retain original titles.
