 Legal Series, 1840, 1900–1955, 21 boxes (8.725 cu. ft.)

 The legal records of J. Strom Thurmond consist of three subseries; those concerning his legal
 practice, legal correspondence as the Edgefield Town and County Attorney, and correspondence
 concerning Thurmond's activities when serving as Eleventh Circuit Judge. The dates preceding
 the start of Thurmond’s practice in 1930 are recordings of wills and mortgages.

 The Legal Practice subseries (Subseries A; 7.175 cu. ft.) consists of three sub-subseries: Law
 Cases, the Record Book, and Miscellaneous Legal Correspondence. The Law Cases (1840,
 1900–1955) are arranged in alphabetical order by case name (plaintiff's first), then
 chronological within each case. The material primarily deals with annulments, suits arising
 from death by accident (automobile, drowning and electrocution), divorces, estates,
 foreclosures, loans, mortgages and wills. Several lumber companies are represented in the
 collection, as are the Graniteville Manufacturing Company, Gulf Oil Refining Company, and
 the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. Cases of special interest include F. W. Pickins Estate, J.
 T. Buzhardt vs. Frigidaire Corporation, Greenwood Cotton Mill vs. J. C. Buzhardt and the
 Town of Lexington vs. J. Strom Thurmond. Legal correspondence dealing with Thurmond's
 positions as county and town attorney for Edgefield is also present. There is considerable
 information about his political career in the correspondence. Major correspondents include
 Eugene Blease, J. Fred Buzhardt (Strom Thurmond's law partner, 1935–1938), James F. Byrnes,
 W. K. Charles, Douglas Featherstone, Mildred Huggins, William Clarence Mann, Calhoun
 Mays, Carroll Johnson Ramage, Horace Sawyer, George Bell Timmerman, and Charles Cecil
 Wyche.

 The Record Book (1930–1937) of cases provides a partial index to the cases and contains the
 following categories: date and result, county, court, judge, title of case, charge or nature of
 action, attorneys for plaintiff and defendant, names of jurors, verdict and fee collected. The
 cases are numbered from 1 to 118. Topics include information on a variety of criminal cases
 and civil suits, such as murder, libel, personal injury and wrongful death suits. Other lawyers
 include Buzhardt, Charles, Benjamin West Crouch, T. B. Greneker, J. William Thurmond and
 F. A. Wise. Judges include G. D. Bellinger, Arthur Lee Gaston, William Heyward Grimball,
 M. M. Mann, Ramage, and Thomas Sidney Sease.

 The Miscellaneous Law Correspondence (1930–1938) is filed in alphabetical order and
 chronologically thereafter. These records consist of correspondence about general legal
 matters. There is some reference to the combined Thurmond and Thurmond law practice when
 they worked on the same case, but the majority of the cases appeared to be handled
 individually. There is some political correspondence and a considerable amount of
 correspondence between Thurmond and Buzhardt. Also included are requests for assistance,
 such as teaching vacancies. Topics include automobile accidents, child support, deeds,
 disability claims, divorce, estates, mortgages, pardons and paroles, personal injury and wills. A
 few personal notes between father and son are present. Major correspondents include Ibra
 Charles Blackwood, Blease, Edgar A. Brown, Buzhardt, Byrnes, Charles, John M. Daniel,
 Oscar Henry Doyle, Mays and Featherstone, the Pierce Brothers and Wyche.

 The Edgefield Attorney subseries (Subseries B; .175 cu. ft.) is divided into two sub-subseries:
 Edgefield County (1932–1938) and Edgefield Town (1931–1938). The Edgefield County
 correspondence, which is arranged alphabetically by subject or type, includes some to and from
 county officials and some between James F. Byrnes and Thurmond about closing a Civilian
 Conservation Corps camp in the county and a Works Progress Administration project.
 Correspondents included in the Edgefield Town correspondence, which is arranged
 chronologically, are the South Carolina Power Company, the Georgia and Florida Railroad, and
 the South Carolina Highway Department.

 The Circuit Judge subseries (Subseries C; 1.275 cu. ft.) consists of the Circuit Judge Race and
 the Circuit Judge Correspondence sub-subseries. The Circuit Judge Race (August, 1937–
 February, 1938) correspondence is filed alphabetically, then chronologically within each letter
 of the alphabet. It deals mainly with gaining support from state legislators (either directly or
 through contact with mutual friends) for Thurmond’s 1938 bid for the Eleventh Circuit
 judgeship. There is some mention of Senator Lanneau C. Lide's race for the Twelfth Circuit
 judgeship. Correspondents include Neville Bennett, Soloman Blatt, Brown, John Bolt
 Culbertson, L. Marion Gressette, Burnet R. Maybank, Donald Russell, and George Bell
 Timmerman, who was Thurmond's opponent in the race but withdrew just prior to the election
 in January 1938.

 The Circuit Judge Correspondence (1938–1946, 1954) is arranged chronologically by year,
 then alphabetically by correspondent or law firm (for example, a letter from Attorney Griffith is
 filed under the name of his firm, Blease and Griffith). Many are letters of transmittal, enclosing
 items which Judge Thurmond signed and returned. A considerable number of out-going
 carbons are missing, possibly because Thurmond traveled so much that he did not retain
 complete files–only one of the three yearly sessions was held in the judge's “home” circuit; the
 other two sessions were rotated among the other thirteen circuits in the state. There is also a file
 containing legal points by subject for jury charges and another containing information on a
 tablet commemorating Edgefield judges.

 Correspondents consist mainly of lawyers, clerks and judges, with some communications from
 state senators and friends and family of plaintiffs and defendants. Important correspondents
 include D. Gordon Baker, Bellinger, Blatt, Blease, M. L. Bonham, Brown, Buzhardt, Daniel,
 Robert M. Figg Jr., Gressette, Lanneau D. Lide, Dorcey K. Lybrand, C. Victor Pyle, Russell,
 John G. Stabler, Timmerman, C. Granville Wyche and Thomas A. Wofford. The letters of
 transmittal contain little of subject interest, but other correpondence discusses cases and some
 political matters such as the Burnet R. Maybank/Neville Bennett gubernatorial race or vote
 fraud in Charleston in 1938. Occasional mentions of Ku Klux Klan activity and the possibility
 of lynching are present, as are discussions of State Supreme Court cases and opinions from
 Thurmond’s weeks of service (in May, 1940 and February, 1941) as an Acting Associate
 Justice. He also replaced an ailing circuit judge in 1954, after he left the governorship.
