Subseries 1.5
Stone Mountain Confederate Monumental Association printed material
Box 10 and OP 1

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains printed material produced mainly by the SMCMA. Addresses delivered at unveiling ceremonies, reports on audits, annual reports, statements by the Association, and general informational booklets are included. A number of booklets relate the criticisms of the SMCMA by Venable and the UDC. Two magazines published by the Association are also represented, as are reprints of newspaper and magazine articles. Four copies of the unveiling edition of Stone Mountain Magazine (OP 1) are housed separately. A folder of miscellaneous broadsides completes this subseries.

The printed material was generally created between 1923 and 1928, and documents the financial condition of the Association, its public quarrels with Borglum, Venable and the UDC, and the progress of the carving. The materials in this subseries seem to have come mostly from the SMCMA office. Some booklets were purchased from David McCord in 1983.

Three major types of printed material have been identified and separated: booklets and brochures, magazines, and reprints. The booklets are arranged in a single alphabetical sequence by title (single items), by individual name (multiple items by the same author), or by subject (multiple items on the same subject). Magazines and reprints are arranged chronologically.

A collection of Stone Mountain broadsides has been cataloged into the Special Collections broadsides collection. Special Collections also holds a number of individual printed items and one small collection of pamphlets concerning Stone Mountain (E641/S8). Duplicate copies of many of these items may also be found in Box 13.
