Scope and Content Note

The series contains subject files that primarily contain extensive research on legal issues linked to Hames’s major cases. Of particular interest is the material on abortion rights and efforts to pass pro-choice legislation in Georgia. The subject files also contain information on her professional life including materials from Hames’s unsuccessful campaign for Georgia Supreme Court Justice in 1982, the Atlanta Bar Association, the Individual Rights Section of the Georgia State Bar that Hames help found, and the American Civil Liberties Union. Personal files includes correspondence concerning her divorce from Atlanta lawyer William Hames and some legal material concerning a coalition of Buckhead residents fighting the construction of a large complex on Peachtree Road near the Hames home. The series also includes material from Cynthia McKinney’s campaign for the House of Representatives in 1992-1993.
