Collection Description

Biographical Note

Hugh Peterson was born on August 21, 1898 to William J. Peterson (1849-1915) and Joanna Calhoun Peterson (1856-1914) in Ailey, Montgomery County, Georgia. Ailey was founded by the Peterson family and incorporated in 1893. It was originally named Peterson although the name was changed in tribute to Ala Peterson, the mother of William J. Peterson and misspelled as Ailey. It is located on U. S. Highway 280 between Vidalia and Mt. Vernon, Georgia.

In 1905, Hugh Peterson entered the Union Baptist Institute and continued his education there through 1916, graduating from Brewton-Parker Institute (both of which now are Brewton-Parker College). He matriculated at the University of Georgia and graduated in 1918, immediately after which he enlisted in the United States Army. Peterson entered West Point in October of the same year and remained in the military until honorably discharged at the end of World War I. He returned to Ailey and established an insurance agency in 1919 while managing the Peterson family farm holdings and studying law under a private course. In 1921, he was admitted to the Georgia Bar Association and elected mayor of Ailey, serving from 1922 to 1923.

In 1922, Peterson won a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives as a representative of Montgomery County. He continued his insurance and farming enterprises while in office and established the Monitor Publishing Company in 1924, serving as president of the publishing company and editor of the Montgomery Monitor into the 1950s. Peterson also maintained his law practice in Ailey while serving in the legislature and worked on parole, divorce, collections and other various civil litigation cases. Information regarding this can be found in Series I. Personal/Business.

Peterson was a member of the Georgia House of Representatives until 1930, during which he served on numerous committees including: Amendments to the Constitution, Appropriations, Aviation, Conservation, General Agriculture Number 1, General Judiciary Number 2, Pensions, Public Highways, Public Printing, Rules, Sanitarium at Alto, State of the Republic, University of Georgia and its Branches, and Ways and Means Committees. He also became close friends with other young legislators from around the state of Georgia, including Roy V. Harris and Richard B. Russell, Jr. Peterson’s high level of involvement with fellow legislators, committees, and state agencies allowed him to contribute to Governor Lamartine Hardman’s plan to reorganize the state government of Georgia in 1928 and 1929. This effort was led by Ivan Allen, an Atlanta businessman, and consisted of a major survey of the departments and organization of the state government. Series III, State Legislative, contains information regarding Peterson’s work in the Georgia legislature.

In late 1929, Hugh Peterson met Patience Elizabeth Russell, the daughter or Judge Richard B. Russell, Sr. and Ina Dillard Russell and sister of Richard B. Russell, Jr. The couple was married on June 24, 1930 in Winder, Georgia and resided in Ailey. Later in the year, Peterson ran for a seat in the state senate as his new brother-in-law, Richard B. Russell, Jr. ran for governor. Both won their respective elections and immediately set to work modifying and implementing former Governor Hardman and Ivan Allen’s plans. Russell named Peterson chair of a special legislative committee on the reorganization of state government in 1931 through which extensive hearings of all state agencies were held. Peterson then authored the State Reorganization Act of 1931, which included the consolidation of over 100 state departments into 19 and included the creation of the Board of Regents. Governor Russell signed the act into law on August 28, 1931.

Peterson’s term as a state senator came to an end in 1932 and he elected not to run again, instead deciding to focus on running for the United States Congress as the representative of the First Congressional District, which had been recently re-surveyed to consist of Bryan, Bulloch, Burke, Candler, Chatham, Effingham, Emanuel, Evans, Jenkins, Long, McIntosh, Montgomery, Screven, Tattnall, Toombs, and Wheeler Counties. His opponent was Homer Parker, who won the election. Peterson spent the next two years carefully planning his campaign for the 1934 election, networking in the First Congressional District, practicing law, and running his insurance, newspaper and agricultural businesses. In 1934, he ran against incumbent Parker and Albert Cobb for the same seat in the 74th Congress and won in the Democratic Primary held on September 12. The Petersons moved to an apartment on Connecticut Avenue in Washington, D.C. soon thereafter, which they kept through the end of Peterson’s life. Series II, Campaigns, contains information regarding theses campaigns as well as those through the 1946 election.

Hugh Peterson remained in office until 1946 and his service as a congressman included extensive research on agriculture and public lands and territories in the United States. He spent his first few terms drafting his primary piece of legislation, H.R. 8286 - A Bill to Provide Homesteads Free of Debt for Actual Farm Families, the goal of which was to help American farmers during the Great Depression with their farm debt. The rate of farmers carrying mortgages had risen exponentially from 1890 to 1930 as had the rate of tenant farmers over owner-operators, which Peterson thought to be a direct correlation with the amount of free land left for Americans to claim. The proposed legislation was originally introduced in 1936 and survived multiple sessions in the House of Representatives. In its report on the bill, the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Public Lands found that no national land legislation allowing persons to claim homesteads had been passed since the Homestead Law of 1862. Coincidentally, the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act, which funded low-interest loans for tenants so that they might become land owners and created the Farm Security Administration, was introduced and passed in the same sessions of Congress. It is thought to be the reason that Peterson’s land proposal never made it out of the House of Representatives. The Legislation subseries of Series IV, U. S. Congress, holds information and research material regarding the bill.

As in the state legislature, Peterson was active on numerous committees. His work on the Committee on Public Lands included a chairmanship of the Subcommittee of Public Domain and Homestead Laws. He also served as chair of the Committee on Territories and spent time studying Hawaii and Alaska, the latter in which he held hearings regarding statehood and traveled extensively. Peterson served on the Roads Committee, the service of which took him to Alaska to study the Alcan Highway as well as Central America to inspect the Inter-American Highway (now known as the Pan American Highway) as it was being built. He participated in the Committee on Rivers and Harbors, serving as chair for almost two years. He also served as chair of the Subcommittee on Beach Erosion and made trips to Texas and California for inspections of coastal property. Peterson also served on the Smith Committee, which was established as a special committee in the House of Representatives to investigate the Executive Branch of the Federal Government, as well as the Election Committee, which was in charge of investigating contested elections. Series IV, U. S. Congress, contains information regarding this work in the committees subseries. During his time in office, Peterson employed staff from Georgia to work in his office including Gladys Aaron, Bill Harris and Joe Underwood. Memos and correspondence from these individuals is found in Series IV, U.S. Congress, as well.

In 1946, returning veteran and former state legislator Prince Preston of Statesboro successfully ran against Peterson for the congressional seat, forcing him to pursue other avenues of political work and focus on his business ventures in Ailey. Upon entering Congress in 1935, Peterson gave up his insurance business but continued running the Monitor Publishing Company as well as the Ailey Gin Company and the Ailey Manufacturing Company, which he established in 1941. He also acquired the Vidalia Gum Turpentine Plant in 1947. While in office, he and his wife Patience spent time rebuilding the Peterson home place in Ailey, which was named Sandridge Manor. After two years of construction, the Petersons moved in with their son Hugh Peterson, Jr. (b. 1935) in 1940. Series I, Personal/Business, contains information regarding this period.

Peterson was able to obtain a position in Germany in 1948 under General Lucius Clay as an advisor after much negotiation and two trips to Europe in 1946 and 1947. While there, he was able to travel throughout Europe to observe the aftermath of World War II and witness the trials at Nuremburg. Unfortunately, he developed minor health problems soon after arriving in Germany and was advised to return to the United States. Series V, Post Congress, holds information about this venture.

From his retirement from Congress through his death in 1961, Peterson spent the rest of his career as a lobbyist for the Georgia Power Company, the United States Cane Refiners Association and the American Turpentine Farmers Association. He also pursued development interests around Montgomery County and the region of southeast Georgia, including the resurrection of the Ocean Steamship Company and the establishment of a radio and television station. He also researched further development around Sylva, North Carolina. It was there that he died of a cerebral hemorrhage on October 3, 1961. He was survived by his wife, Patience Russell Peterson, who died in 2002 at the age of 100, and his son, Hugh Peterson, Jr., who is a retired attorney in Atlanta, Georgia, and chairman and CEO of VNS Corporation, the successor to the Vidalia Gum and Turpentine Company.

Scope and Content

Materials include personal, political, legal, and business correspondence, legislative files, campaign files as well as photographs, books, maps, and artifacts, all of which document Hugh Peterson’s life. While the majority of materials date from Peterson’s youth through his death in 1961, the earliest date back to 1814 and document family land holdings around Montgomery County, Georgia through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries primarily through tax receipts. The documents created by Hugh Peterson himself were generated for his legislative career and business interests and consist of clippings, correspondence, political committee materials, voter registration lists, legislative research, and drafts of legislation. The collection also contains numerous notes that Peterson took regarding office matters as well as telephone calls and visits he received and made while in office.

Series I, Personal/Business consists of documents associated with Peterson’s work and life in Ailey, Georgia, before, during, and after his service in the United States Congress. The material includes information about his ownership of the Monitor Publishing Company (publisher of the Montgomery Monitor and the Thomasville Press) as well as his legal work including law suits, divorces, collections, and parole cases. Peterson also owned an insurance agency from 1919 through 1935. While his local interests included traditional agricultural pursuits via the Ailey Gin Company and the Vidalia Gum and Turpentine Company, Peterson spent much time helping to establish the Ailey Shirt Company, Southland Securities, the Montgomery County Bank and the Mt. Vernon Bank. Much of the correspondence dating from the 1920s and 1930s came from letter books that were alphabetized. Subject files were maintained by Peterson after he retired from Congress.

Series II, Campaigns consists of Peterson’s personal campaign files for the elections in 1932, 1934, 1936, 1938, 1940, 1942, 1944, 1946 as well as records of Richard B. Russell’s presidential campaign in 1952. Each sub series contains information regarding the District and State Democratic Committees as well as the paperwork that Peterson submitted to each in order to run and after he won. Information about opponents and campaign flyers are also included. Peterson worked on Richard Russell’s campaign in 1952 for President of the United States and subseries H contains clippings and information about the Democratic National Convention. Subseries I consists of hand-painted cloth campaign banners.

Series III, State Legislative consists of documents from Peterson’s service in the Georgia House of Representative from 1922 to 1930 and the Georgia Senate from 1931-1933. He was a major architect of the state reorganization bill, first in the House and later in the Senate, which became law in 1931 under Richard B. Russell’s governorship. Correspondence ranges from fellow politicians writing about intra-personal matters in the legislature to citizens responding to the idea of reorganizing state governmental agencies. The subject files and legislation pertain to the state reorganization bill.

Series IV, United States Congress contains items documenting Peterson’s career representing the First Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. While in office, Peterson proposed bills regarding farm homesteads and was active on several congressional committees, including Rivers and Harbors, Public Lands, Territories, and Roads. Peterson’s activity in the House of Representatives during the 1930s and 1940s provides a unique view of the national political scene during the Great Depression and World War II.

Series V, Post Congressional documents Peterson’s work as a lobbyist and in Europe after World War II where he witnessed the Nuremburg Trials, the Paris Peace Conference, and was appointed by General Lucius D. Clay to an advisory panel on West Germany. Until his death in 1961, Peterson worked as a lobbyist for such companies as Georgia Power and the American Cane Sugar Refiners Association.

Overarching themes in the collection include road building (Series I and III), the penal system in the state of Georgia (Series I and III), state reorganization (Series I, II, III and IV), agriculture (Series I and IV), and land use (Series IV). Information about politics and politicians in the state of Georgia from the 1920s through the 1950s is found in every series of the correspondence in the sections containing correspondence and subject files.

III. State Legislative

Extent: 3.0 boxes
Extent: (3 linear feet)
Scope and Content: This series consists of documents from Peterson’s service in the Georgia House of Representative from 1922 to 1930 and the Georgia Senate from 1931 to1933. He was a major architect of the state reorganization bill, first in the House and later in the Senate, which became law in 1931 under Richard B. Russell’s governorship. The items are organized into the following categories: A. Correspondence, B. Subject Files, and C. Legislation.



A. Correspondence

Extent: 106.0 folders
Scope and Contents note: The correspondence files contain a large amount of information involving the mechanics of Georgia state government in the 1920s and early 1930s from legislation and research to key players and personalities. The majority of correspondence was originally kept in a series of 5 letterboxes that contained both letters received and copies of Peterson’s responses alphabetized from 1923 through 1934. Among those with whom Peterson corresponded are Walter F. George, John Slaton, Eugene Talmadge, Roy V. Harris, E. D. Rivers, Thomas Hardwick, and Lamartine G. Hardman. Communication between Peterson and Richard B. Russell, Jr. is especially profuse and ranges from Russell’s early bid to be Speaker Pro Tem in 1924 to patronage in his first years in the United States Senate. In the series of letters from 1923 to1928, there is correspondence regarding the governor’s race in 1926 as well as the condition of prisons in the state and the prospect of road building. Peterson’s correspondence from 1929 through 1931 is primarily concerned with the Committee for State Reorganization, in which he was an active participant during his service in both the Georgia House and Senate. The letters are from a variety of writers around the state ranging from high-ranking state officials to civic groups defending specific departments under scrutiny in the reorganization process. Many letters are from average citizens letting Peterson know that they support his efforts. In the late portion of correspondence from 1932 to 1934, Peterson recommended many people for government positions both to Senator Russell and Governor Eugene Talmadge and discussed his two runs for United States Congress in 1932 (in which he was defeated by Homer C. Parker) and 1934, in which he won.

C. Legislation

Extent: 17.0 folders
Scope and Contents note: This subseries contains drafts and final prints of Peterson’s proposed bills and amendments as well as committee reports for legislation. His primary piece of legislation, H.R. 8286 A Bill to Provide Homesteads Free of Debt for Actual Farm Families, was originally introduced in 1936 and survived multiple sessions in the House of Representatives. In its committee report on the bill, the Subcommittee on the Public Lands of the House of Representatives found that no national land legislation allowing persons to claim homesteads had been passed since the Homestead Law of 1862 and the rate of farmers carrying mortgages had risen exponentially from 1890 to 1930 as had the rate of tenant farmers over owner-operators, which appeared to be a direct correlation with the amount of free land left for Americans to claim. Peterson’s goal was to help American farmers during the Great Depression with their farm debt. The Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act, which funded low-interest loans for tenants so that they might become land owners and created the Farm Security Administration, was passed in the late 1930s and is thought to be the reason for the death of Peterson’s land proposal in the House.

V. Post Congressional

Extent: 4.0 boxes
Extent: (3.5 linear feet)
Scope and Content: This series documents Peterson’s work as a lobbyist and in Europe after World War II where he witnessed the Nuremburg Trials, the Paris Peace Conference, and was appointed by General Lucius D. Clay to an advisory panel on West Germany. Until his death in 1961, Peterson worked as a lobbyist for such companies as the Georgia Power Company and the American Cane Sugar Refiners Association. The materials are arranged into the following categories: A. European Trip and B. Lobbying.



A. European Trip

Extent: 23.0 folders
Scope and Contents note: The subseries pertaining to Peterson’s trips to Europe to work in Germany under General Lucius Clay contains correspondence and paperwork relating to his position. He knew by September 1946 that he would not be returning to Congress, due to Prince Preston’s winning the Democratic Primary, and was interested in pursuing contract work in post-war Europe. Peterson traveled to England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Germany in the fall of 1946 to meet foreign officials as well as Americans working abroad and determine where he could find a post. Although he was given a position by Clay to work in West Germany in 1948, Peterson’s time in Europe was limited as he developed minor health problems, and medical staff advised that he return to the United States.
