SERIES I: Photographs


Note:
Identification is provided of persons and sites which appear in the 831 prints made by USM's Photo Services Department of the 1,759 negatives donated to the University by the photographer Herbert Randall in 1998. The order of the prints reflects but does not strictly replicate the order of the negatives because Randall used several cameras at one time. The identifications of persons and buildings have been generously provided by many of the local people and former volunteers who made Freedom Summer happen. A photocopy set of the prints with identifications that point to each individual is located within the collection.

Note:
The COFO-Hattiesburg Project office and the U.S. Senate MFDP campaign headquarters of Victoria Jackson Gray were both located in the Woods Guest House, a historic Negro hotel owned by Mrs. Lenon E. Woods, at 507 Mobile Street (destroyed by fire September 17, 1998). Both J.C. Fairley's Radio & TV Service Shop and the Hattiesburg Ministers Project headquarters were located in the Negro Masonic Lodge at 522 Mobile Street, typically described as "6th and Mobile Streets" (extant to date).

Note:
The 1964 locations of the black churches which participated in Freedom Summer by hosting MFDP meetings, Freedom Schools, and/or Freedom Libraries are:Bentley Chapel United Methodist Church (514 Ashford Street), Morning Star Baptist Church (1406 Elizabeth Street), Mt. Zion Baptist Church (900 Spencer Street), Priest Creek Missionary Baptist Church (Palmer's Crossing), St. James Christian Methodist Episcopal Church (408 East 7th Street), St. John United Methodist Church (121 Sullivan Drive, Palmers Crossing), St. Paul United Methodist Church (215 East 5th Street), and True Light Baptist Church (1109 Dewey Street).There were two Community Centers established in the Hattiesburg project by means of local people and volunteers refurbishing existing buildings. The first, which opened with a party on July 18, was located in a former kindergarten building in Palmers Crossing, on Old Airport Road across from the Hi-Hat Club. The second was located in a house at 1100 Dewey Street in Hattiesburg, across from True Light Baptist Church. Both buildings have since been demolished.

SUB-SERIES 1, Prints #1-91: Second SNCC Orientation Session, Western College for Women, Oxford, Ohio, June 22-27, 1964


Note: Prints #1-21 were taken not by Herbert Randall but by a SNCC staff photographer. While in Hattiesburg during Freedom Summer, Randall periodically sent his negatives to SNCC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia for safekeeping. When the negatives were returned to him after the end of the summer, the other negatives were included with his. By the time Randall realized it and contacted SNCC headquarters, there was no longer anyone there who could identify the other photographer.
