Collection Description

Biographical Note

It was once said if you were not a Talmadge man you were a communist. The Talmadge dynasty began in 1926 when Eugene Talmadge, Herman's father, was first elected Commissioner of Agriculture. Gene would later be elected governor of Georgia to an unprecedented four terms. For over fifty years the Talmadges dominated Georgia politics until Herman was defeated in 1980.

Born on August 9, 1913, on a farm near McRae, Georgia, to Eugene and Mattie Talmadge, Herman attended public schools until his senior year when his family moved to Atlanta. In the fall of 1931, he entered the University of Georgia. By 1936, he had received his law degree and joined his father's law practice.

After serving in the United States Navy during World War II, Talmadge returned to his home in Lovejoy. While continuing to practice law and to farm, Talmadge took over publishing his father's weekly newspaper, The Statesman, and started a ham-curing business.

Talmadge's first involvement in politics was as his father's campaign manager in 1946. Running for an unprecedented fourth term as governor of Georgia, Eugene Talmadge was elected in November 1946, but was in failing health. As a precaution, a small group of Talmadge supporters started a write-in campaign for Herman Talmadge during the general election. When the elder Talmadge died in December 1946, before being sworn in as governor, the Georgia General Assembly elected his son governor by a vote of 161 to 87. But outgoing Governor Ellis Arnall refused to surrender his office unless it was to elected-Lieutenant Governor Melvin E. Thompson. After a period of uncertainty, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled that the constitutional portion under which the General Assembly had elected Herman Talmadge did not apply. The court declared M. E. Thompson acting governor until a special election could be held. In September 1948, Talmadge was elected governor and re-elected in 1950, serving until January 1955.

As governor, Herman Talmadge concentrated on improving educational opportunities for children of all races by establishing youth centers, increasing construction of rural roads, and building additional hospitals and health care centers.

When Senator Walter George officially announced his decision not to run for United States Senate, Talmadge started campaigning to take his place. Once again he was opposed by M. E. Thompson, but defeated him in the Democratic primary. With no Republican opposition in the general election in November 1956, Talmadge was elected United States senator.

The civil rights movement of the 1950s ultimately effected equal rights legislation for African-Americans and eliminated segregated public facilities in the South. Although progress toward integrating public schools was achieved, a majority of whites in the South remained adamant in their resistance to desegregation.

As part of that majority, Talmadge had voiced his opposition as early as the 1948 Democratic Convention when President Harry Truman tried to add civil rights to the platform. And in response to the Supreme Court ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education, Talmadge authored a book in 1955 about the wisdom of segregated education entitled You and Segregation.

When Talmadge officially began his term as the junior senator from Georgia in January 1957, he immediately joined the other Southern Democrats in their fight against civil rights legislation. "I never read a civil rights bill that didn't destroy more constitutional rights that it purported to give any group."

In response to the crisis of integrating Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas, Talmadge proposed a constitutional amendment in 1959 that would have permitted the state and local governments to decide whether or not to keep their schools segregated. This proposal was the first acknowledgment from a southern senator that Brown vs. Board of Education was an established fact.

Having won a seat on the Agriculture Committee in 1957, Talmadge wielded his greatest influence on bills that affected American farmers and agriculture. By 1971, he had become chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. Some of his major accomplishments in this area included guiding passage of a series of acts, which established price support programs for peanuts, cotton, wheat, and other commodities.

Talmadge probably achieved his greatest national prominence through his role on the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities, which investigated the Watergate scandal and ultimately led to the resignation of the president and vice president of the United States, as well as the conviction of three cabinet members on felony charges. Talmadge thought that the Watergate investigation was one of the most important events in the history of the United States and demonstrated that a republican form of government has a way of correcting the conduct of public officials and alerting others not to make the same mistake.

At the same time he was gaining national recognition, Talmadge was besieged by a series of personal and political tragedies. In 1975, his son Robert drowned in a swimming accident at Lake Lanier; by the fall of 1977, Betty and Herman Talmadge had finalized their divorce; then, in 1978, Talmadge came to grips with a serious drinking problem. Following an alcohol treatment program at the naval hospital in Long Beach, California, he returned to Washington, ready to work, but met with scandal instead. Shortly after returning to the Capitol, Talmadge was accused of misappropriating office funds and campaign donations for his own personal use. The Senate Ethics Committee investigated the allegations and recommended that Talmadge be "denounced" for his reprehensible behavior and sentenced to reimburse the Senate for these controversial funds with interest.

Despite these problems, Talmadge sought his fifth term as senator in 1980, but was rejected by Georgia voters who chose to elect Mack Mattingly to replace him, the first Republican to hold the office since Reconstruction.

Serving twenty-four years in the United States Senate, Talmadge ranked fifth in seniority among Senate Democrats and seventh overall by the time he left office. Herman Talmadge passed away on March 21, 2002. He is survived by his one son, grandchildren, and wife Linda.

Scope and Content

The committee was ordered to investigate the Watergate break-in and cover-up as well as other matters relating to the 1972 presidential campaign. These files reflect Talmadge's involvement on the Senate Select Committee and include committee and subject files, witness information, and proceeding reports. The files also contain correspondence, legal documents, lists, memorandums, and reports relating to committee business, political espionage, and the Bellino subcommittee. The Bellino subcommittee was composed of Senators Talmadge, Edward Gurnery and Daniel Inouye, and was created to investigate allegations that Carmine Bellino had spied on Republican party campaign officials during the 1960 presidential campaign on behalf of the Democratic party. The subject files consist of witness summaries, statements, exhibits, and correspondence. Materials pertain to illegal campaign contributions by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and Braniff Airways, ITT anti-trust and milk pricing cases, and the Responsiveness Program, an attempt to make government departments more "responsive" to the political needs of Nixon's re-election campaign.

IV. Watergate files

Extent: 73.0 boxes
Extent: (36.25 linear feet)
Scope and Contents note: The United States Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities, known as the Ervin Committee, was created in late 1972 by a nonpartisan 77-0 vote. The committee was ordered to investigate the Watergate break-in and cover-up as well as other matters relating to the 1972 presidential campaign. The mandate of the Senate was to investigate thoroughly and hold hearings on the break-in of the Democratic National headquarters at Watergate, the political espionage and sabotage of candidates' campaigns-the so-called "dirty tricks"-and all aspects of campaign financing in the 1972 presidential campaign.
Both Republican and Democratic leadership selected the committee members and gave them broad powers to subpoena witnesses and records as they probed the break-in at the Democratic National Headquarters in Washington, DC. Senator Sam J. Ervin, D-NC, a former state Supreme Court Justice before coming to the United States Senate in 1954, chaired the special panel. Tapped for service on Ervin's committee were Republicans Howard H. Baker, Jr. of Tennessee, Edward J. Gurney of Florida, and Lowell P. Weicker Jr. of Connecticut, along with Democrats Daniel K. Inouye of Hawaii, Joseph M. Montoya of New Mexico, and Herman E. Talmadge of Georgia.The Watergate files reflect Talmadge's involvement with serving on the Senate Select Committee and include committee and subject files, witness information, and proceeding reports. Committee files contain correspondence, legal documents, lists, memorandums, and reports relating to committee business, political espionage, and the Bellino subcommittee. The Bellino subcommittee was composed of Senators Talmadge, Edward Gurnery and Daniel Inouye, and was created to investigate allegations that Carmine Bellino had spied on Republican party campaign officials during the 1960 presidential campaign on behalf of the Democratic party.

Bellino.The subject files consist of witness summaries, statements, exhibits, and correspondence.

Extent: 45.5 boxes
Scope and Contents note: This subseries is composed of correspondence (both copies and originals), memos, telegrams, postcards, resolutions, petitions, articles, and other material sent by non-Georgians commenting on Watergate and related matters. This material was originally bundled together for Talmadge's office staff to answer (see memo in Subseries B above, in the correspondence folder), and this arrangement was retained during processing, so there is no systematic chronological arrangement within each folder. Some of the material has handwritten notations indicating the number of the flexy (form letter), to be used in reply. The subseries is composed of the following divisions: 1. Answered-Categorized and 2. Answered-Uncategorized.
1. Answered-Categorized, 1973
Extent: 22.0 boxes
Scope and Contents note: This division consists of the following subdivisions: Bobby Baker (reactions to an article alleging a cover-up scandal involving Baker during the administration of Lyndon Johnson by some of the members of the Select Committee, including Talmadge; also the Georgia two-governor controversy including Talmadge), Anti-Nixon (primarily opposing any compromise on the Watergate tapes and the dismissal of Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox), Pro-Nixon, Favorable (to the Committee in whole or in part, or to Talmadge particularly), Unfavorable (same parenthetical note as above), and Regular (subsumes all of the categories above, plus material of an informational nature).

Extent: 10.5 boxes
Scope and Contents note: Similar in content to Subseries C, above. This is material from non-Georgians and Georgians that was not answered by Talmadge's staff due to content or the lack of address. Arranged chronologically, this subseries also consisted of bundles, so it shares Subseries C's lack of systematic chronological arrangement within each folder. Includes text of radio address/sound recording entitled "Americans" by Gordon Sinclair (Folder 1, Box 65).
