Collection Description

Biographical Note

James Roy Rowland, Jr., was born in Wrightsville, Johnson County, Georgia, on February 3, 1926, to Superior Court Judge and Mrs. J. Roy Rowland, Sr. He attended Wrightsville Primary School and Wrightsville High School, graduating in 1943. He was also an Eagle Scout. Rowland briefly attended Emory University at Oxford, Georgia, as a pre-med student prior to his enlistment in the U.S. Army, serving from 1944 to 1946. He achieved the rank of sergeant and earned a Bronze Star. After returning from Europe, he attended South Georgia College, the University of Georgia, and eventually enrolled in the Medical College of Georgia where he earned his M.D. in 1952. Soon after, he established a family medical practice in Dublin, Georgia, which he maintained until 1980.

In 1976, Rowland ran for the 119th District seat (part of Laurens County) in the Georgia House of Representatives. He was elected and served three terms until 1982.

In 1982, he defeated incumbent Billy Lee Evans for the 8th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives and served for six consecutive terms as a Democrat. In 1994, he chose not to seek reelection. When Rowland was elected in 1982, the 8th District consisted of the following thirty counties in middle and south Georgia, including the city of Macon: Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Baldwin, Bibb, Charlton, Clinch, Coffee, Dodge, Glascock, Greene, Hancock, Jasper, Jeff Davis, Jefferson, Johnson, Jones, Laurens, Monroe, Pierce, Putnam, Taliaferro, Telfair, Treutlen, Twiggs, Ware, Washington, Wheeler, Wilcox, and Wilkinson. After redistricting in 1992, Rowland was reelected to the new 8th District in November. The district then comprised thirty-two counties, now including the cities of Macon, Warner Robins, Albany, and Valdosta: Atkinson, Ben Hill, Berrien, Bibb, Bleckley, Clinch, Coffee, Colquitt, Cook, Crisp, Dodge, Dooly, Dougherty, Echols, Houston, Irwin, Jeff Davis, Johnson, Jones, Lanier, Laurens, Lee, Lowndes, Pulaski, Telfair, Tift, Treutlen, Turner, Twiggs, Wheeler, Wilcox, and Worth.

As one of the few medical doctors in Congress (the only doctor in Congress from 1985 to 1988), Rowland capitalized on his experience as a family physician in a largely rural district of Georgia to develop new legislation and contribute to commissions, coalitions, caucuses, and task forces. Rowland belonged to the following House committees and subcommittees: Energy and Commerce Committee (1989-1994), Health and the Environment subcommittee, Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Competitiveness subcommittee, Transportation and Hazardous Materials subcommittee; Veterans’ Affairs Committee (1983-1994), Hospitals and Health Care subcommittee (chairman, 1993-1994), Housing and Memorial Affairs subcommittee; Public Works and Transportation Committee (1983-1989), Airports and Aviation subcommittee; Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families (1983-1994).

Rowland also served on a number of boards (e.g. Biomedical Ethics Board), coalitions (e.g., Rural Health Care Coalition), task forces (e.g., Conservative Democratic Forum: Education Task Force), caucuses (e.g., Congressional Sunbelt Caucus, Congressional Arts Caucus) and commissions, including many that were related to health care. Of particular note is his service on the National Commission on Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), an independent, bi-partisan commission charged with making recommendations to Congress and the president towards the creation of a uniform national policy on AIDS and HIV. Rowland drafted the legislation for the commission’s founding (H.R. 2881) and Vice President George H. W. Bush appointed Rowland a member of the commission in 1988. Rowland was also appointed to the National Commission to Prevent Infant Mortality by the Speaker of the House Thomas P. O’Neil in 1987, and served as vice-chairman. This commission was charged with developing a uniform policy and making recommendations to Congress about infant mortality.

Rowland has received numerous awards, including Peace through Strength Award for his support of defense issues, the Guardian of Small Business Award, and the Legislator of the Year Award in Georgia (1986). In 1998, the Dublin Federal Courthouse was renamed the J. Roy Rowland Federal Courthouse in his honor.

After his congressional career, Rowland has continued to be active in public policy and health care. In 2003, Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue appointed Rowland to the Commission for a New Georgia to assist with health care issues in the state. In 2005, Perdue appointed him to the Board of Directors of Medical College of Georgia Health, Inc. He has also served as an Advisory Board member to Prevent Child Abuse, Georgia.

Rowland married Luella Price in 1945, and they have three children. He and his wife currently reside in Dublin, Georgia.

Scope and Content

The Administrative Series consists of subject files, campaign records, clippings and press releases, bills, voting records, and committee files. Of particular note is Member-to-Member correspondence that reflects Rowland’s communication with other representatives seeking support on various issues and requesting to be appointed to particular committees. The legislation files document Rowland’s legislative interests, primarily related to health care. Included is a comprehensive list of the bills Rowland introduced as well as printed copies of some of these bills. Though representative of Rowland’s membership on committees, caucuses and other groups and forums, Committees/Caucuses files contain primarily meeting and hearing notices and some agendas for the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Public Works and Transportation Committee and the Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families. The press files consist of clippings and news releases, arranged chronologically, mostly from 1991 to 1993. The bulk of the collection’s news clippings, organized by subject, can be found in Series IV. Press. Campaign files includes records of contributions and letters of support related to Rowland’s 1984 re-election campaign. There is some information on how various organizations, such as the AFL-CIO and Christian Voice, interpreted Rowland’s stance on specific issues.

Organization and Arrangement

The Administrative Series is organized in three subseries: A. Subject Files, B. Invitations, and C. Schedules.

Series Descriptions and Folder Listing

 

I. Administrative

Extent: 63.0 boxes
Extent: (30.5 linear feet)
Scope and Content: The Administrative Series is organized in three subseries: A. Subject Files, B. Invitations, and C. Schedules. Created and maintained by Barbara (McElveen) Schlein, who served throughout Rowland’s six terms, first as his executive secretary, then as office manager and lastly as staff director, these files primarily document the operation of his Washington, D.C., office as well as Rowland’s daily activities.



A. Subject Files

Extent: 30.0 boxes
Extent: (14.25 linear feet)
Scope and Contents note: This subseries is organized by subject (derived from the office filing system) and arranged alphabetically. The lone exception is Alphabetical Files, an artificial heading designating a distinct group of files arranged alphabetically by Schlein that includes subject matter encompassed within Subject Files. In an effort to maintain original order and keep related files together, small caches of files were organized within each subject heading based on the dates covered by the material.
Correspondence dominates the subseries, with much of it routine in nature, such as memos to staff, thank you letters and congratulations. Of particular note is Member-to-Member correspondence that reflects Rowland’s communication with other representatives seeking support on various issues and requesting to be appointed to particular committees. Files identified as General Correspondence contain a combination of all these.Legislation includes files documenting Rowland’s legislative interests, primarily related to health care. Of particular interest is a comprehensive list of the bills Rowland introduced as well as printed copies of some of these bills. Though representative of Rowland’s membership on committees, caucuses and other groups and forums, Committees/Caucuses files contain primarily meeting and hearing notices and some agenda for the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Public Works and Transportation Committee and the Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families. The Democratic Steering and Policy Committee material includes a complete roster of committees on which Rowland and the rest of the 103rd Congress served. For more substantial information about legislation and Rowland’s committees, see Series II. Legislative.Press consists of news clippings and news releases, arranged chronologically, mostly from 1991 to 1993. The bulk of the collection’s news clippings, organized by subject, can be found in Series IV. Press. Campaign includes records of contributions and letters of support related to Rowland’s 1984 re-election campaign.Special Projects and Travel are chiefly Schlein’s files for planning specific events and trips for Rowland. Files related to voting records, however, contain information on how various organizations, such as the AFL-CIO and Christian Voice, interpreted Rowland’s stance on specific issues. Several groups of files (Budget, Interns, Office Equipment, Offices) pertain to office operations and include material related to office expenses and procedures.Casework and County Profiles relate most directly to Rowland’s constituents: the former being requests for help in dealing with specific government agencies, the latter containing information on the thirty counties within the 8th District. Casework files are closed for 75 years from date of creation.

C. Schedules

Extent: 7.0 boxes
Extent: (3.5 linear feet)
Scope and Contents note: This subseries is organized in four sub-subseries: 1. Appointment books; 2. Computer printouts; 3. Daily; and 4. With background material. Arrangement within each is chronological. The schedules, in various configurations, document Rowland’s activities throughout each working day. The appointment books are bound, journal-style calendars that include handwritten notes. Computer printouts were printed, presumably, from a scheduling database. Daily schedules, for the most part, are comprised of “clean” sheets with few if any notations and supplementary material. (Floppy disks containing daily schedule files accompany these.) Schedules with background material consist of correspondence, staff notes or additional documentation related to activities on the day in question. While gaps exist throughout each sub-subseries, Rowland’s six terms in office appear to be documented in their entirety.
