Stone Mountain Confederate Monumental Association minutes and reports, 1915-1929
Boxes 5-6 and BV 1-4

Scope and Content Note

Minutes, official reports, and resolutions of the SMCMA and the SMMA are found in Subseries 1.2. Minutes of the annual meetings of the Association (1918-1927), executive committee minutes (1916-1927), and minutes of meetings of various other committees are included. There is one folder of minutes of the SMMA (1923). The minutes document the Association's financial activities; its disputes with Borglum regarding his contract, his coin design, and his public statements (late 1924); the employment of Augustus Lukeman (April 1925); and the Association's attempt to gain the right to condemn and purchase the land around the mountain (1927). There is a gap in the minutes for December 3, 1924.

Four bound volumes of executive committee minutes (BV 1-4), including the Association's petition for incorporation, its charter, and its bylaws and constitution (1916), are housed separately. The dates of the bound minutes overlap those of the unbound minutes, but the two sets of minutes do not exactly duplicate one another.

Reports of the president and committees in regard to finances, the progress of the carving, and special ceremonies and functions are also represented. Finally, this subseries contains resolutions concerning Venable's donation of the mountain, finances, coin sales, Borglum, audits and Lukeman's models.
