Scope and Content Note

The series contains materials concerning members of the Hartsfield family, including biographical material, calendars, legal records, and correspondence to and from family members. Biographical data includes Hartsfield family genealogical records, subject files relating to dependents of William B. Hartsfield, and biographical sketches of William B. Hartsfield. Correspondence includes letters to and from Hartsfield family members, including correspondence between Hartsfield and his second wife Tollie Tolan. Tolan's correspondence makes up approximately half of the family correspondence, spanning the periods before her marriage to Hartsfield and after his death (1940-1986). Her correspondence is comprised of love letters from Hartsfield, communication regarding social and political engagements, letters to and from friends and family, and sympathy letters following Hartsfield's death in 1971. Correspondence relating to Hartsfield's political career as mayor may be found in Series 2: Correspondence.

Calendars were kept by William Hartsfield and contain appointments and other notations. Financial records pertain mostly to Hartsfield and contain banking records (including paycheck stubs showing Hartsfield's salary as mayor), income tax reports, investments, and records of travel reimbursements from the city of Atlanta. Financial records relating to election campaigns and mineral investments can be found in the appropriate subject files in Series 3: Elections and Series 6: Personal business records. Legal records in this series include financial documents; wills and estates; passports and birth certificates; property mortgages; military, education, and employment documents; and other legal documents. The records pertain mainly to Hartsfield, Tollie Tolan (Mrs. W.B. Hartsfield), and their adopted son, Carl Siegfried Hartsfield. Several documents concerning estates and wills pertain to other members of the Hartsfield family.
