Series II, Sub-Series 9: Sovereignty Commission, Boxes 135 - 143:

The State Sovereignty Commission was created by the Mississippi Legislature in 1956 to defend the state "from encroachment by the Federal Government." The Commission monitored those suspected of supporting racial integration, until the Legislature abolished it in 1977. As Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi, Paul B. Johnson, Jr. received copies of regular reports prepared by the head of the State Sovereignty Commission. Reports in this sub-series have been arranged by dates, and other materials have been placed in files, according to their subject.
