Biographical Note

James Howard Meredith was born on 25 June 1933, in Kosciusko, Mississippi, and raised on his family’s eighty-four-acre farm
in Attala County. After graduation from St. Petersburg (Florida) High School in 1951, he served in the U.S. Air Force from
1951 to 1960, including a three-year tour of duty at Tackikawa Airforce Base in Japan.

He returned to his home state determined to become the first African American to attend The University of Mississippi. He
attended Jackson State College from 1960 to 1961, and applied for admission to The University of Mississippi in January 1961.
The state took several measures to prevent his admission. In February, the University sent Meredith a telegram denying his
admission. When Meredith’s responses to this telegram went unanswered, he filed suit with the assistance of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored People Legal Defense Fund. After a protracted court battle, the United States Supreme Court
ruled on 10 September 1962, that Meredith was to be admitted to the University. Governor Ross Barnett tried to prevent Meredith’s
enrollment by assuming the position of registrar and blocking his admission. On 30 September 1962, when a deal was reached
between Governor Barnett and U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy to allow Meredith to enroll, a riot broke out on campus.
A mob of angry whites confronted U. S. marshals stationed on campus to protect Meredith. The crowd assaulted the marshals
with bricks and bullets outside the Lyceum, the university’s administration building, until the arrival of federal troops
quelled the violence in the early morning hours. Two bystanders died in the confrontation, 206 marshals and soldiers were
wounded, and two hundred individuals were arrested. James Meredith was finally allowed to register for courses in October
1962.

Messages of support for Meredith arrived from all over the world, including from Rosa Parks, Josephine Baker, and Langston
Hughes. However, Meredith was ostracized by most of his fellow students at the University and needed twenty-four-hour protection
from marshals. As a result, he described himself as “the most segregated Negro in America.” The broadside “Rebel Resistance”
was created by students, in collaboration with the Citizens’ Council, to urge students to avoid any association with Meredith.
Federal troops remained on campus for over a year to ensure his safety. In spite of these challenges, Meredith graduated with
a bachelor’s degree in August 1963. He went on to earn his LL.B in 1968 from Columbia University Law School.

Meredith has dedicated his life to supporting individual rights. Aside from being the first African American to attend The
University of Mississippi, Meredith is noted for leading the 1966 “March Against Fear” from Memphis to Jackson in protest
of the physical violence that African Americans faced while exercising their right to vote. When Meredith was shot on the
second day of the march, civil rights leaders, including Martin Luther King, Jr., stepped in to complete the march. Meredith
campaigned on behalf of a number of black politicians in several states, and in 1972 ran unsuccessfully for a congressional
seat. In 1989, he joined the staff of North Carolina’s arch-conservative Senator Jesse Helms. In 1996, he led the “Black Man’s
March to the Library.” He is the author of numerous publications, including
Three Years in Mississippi, which describes his experience integrating The University of Mississippi, and
 Mississippi: A Volume of Eleven Books.

Scope and Content Note

The James H. Meredith Collection documents the family, educational, and professional life of James Meredith, the first African
American student to attend The University of Mississippi. The collection is housed in 146 archival boxes and is approximately
86 linear feet in extent. It spans the years from 1950 through 1997 but focuses primarily on the years from 1960 through 1990.

Items within each series have been arranged chronologically. Within each year the materials have been divided into subject
categories. The earlier years have item-level description; later years have box/folder listings with significant items noted.

For the most part the Meredith Collection arrived without a systematic arrangement imposed by its creator, but Meredith did
maintain folders on various subjects. The materials in each of these folders have been maintained as a unit even though they
usually span several years. These files are identified as “Meredith Subject Files” in the inventory. Each subject file has
been placed in the overall collection’s chronological arrangement based on the date of the last item in the folder. The date
span of items in the folder has been noted in the inventory.

Series 1, Papers 1952-1961, contains business and professional papers, family records, and personal papers covering Meredith’s
life from 1952 to 1961, including his military service and studies at Jackson State College.

Series 2 and 3, spanning the period 1962 to 1969, contain extensive documentation of Meredith’s battle to enroll at The University
of Mississippi in 1962, including his correspondence with the NAACP and all of the positive and negative letters he received
from around the world during his ordeal. It also covers his later civil rights activities, including the James Meredith Educational
Fund and the 1966 “March Against Fear” from Memphis to Jackson. In addition, it contains material related to family matters,
his attendance at Columbia Law School, speaking engagements, and publication of
Three Years in Mississippi.

Series 4 and 5, covering the 1970s, contain correspondence and printed material covering Meredith’s political activism on
behalf of various candidates, his campaigns for Congress and Hinds County Tax Assessor, and various business ventures.

Series 6 contains the records of
Outlook magazine, a publication created by Meredith Enterprises, including copies of the magazine, drafts, financial documents, subscription
records, layouts, research, and general correspondence. These records date from the 1970s.

Series 7 documents Meredith’s interests in Africa and Pan-African affairs from 1965 to 1989, including extensive correspondence
with business people, diplomats, and activists in several countries, particularly Nigeria.

Series 8 and 9, spanning the 1980s, consist of correspondence and printed material regarding Meredith’s public engagements,
writings, academic endeavors such as the Meredith Educational Institution, family relationships, legal affairs, conferences,
business ventures, political activism, and his tenure with Senator Jesse Helms. Also included are Meredith’s subject files
on race, higher education, and law.

Series 10 and 11, covering the 1990s, contain files from his work as Special Assistant to Senator Jesse Helms, publications,
manuscripts, notes, financial and business documents, subject files on various topics and current events, and materials related
to his speaking engagements, political activism, and publicity. Series 11 also contains undated documents similar to those
found in the earlier series.
