In 1932, Governor O. Max Gardner transmitted to the members-elect of the North Carolina General Assembly a report calling for widespread revisions of the state's constitution. This report had been generated by the North Carolina Constitutional Commission, appointed by Gardner in 1931. The General Assembly, in 1933, appointed a joint committee, headed by Senator Capus M. Waynick of High Point, to consider the report. With some changes, the recommendations of the Constitutional Commission were passed on to the voters of the state for approval.
This collection consists of materials about the proposed revisions gathered by Waynick; Albert Coates of the Law School of the University of North Carolina; and Dillard S. Gardner, associate director of UNC's Institute of Government. For the most part, these materials are letters with lengthy enclosures detailing the correspondent's support for the proposed revisions. Letters from April 1934 also comment on a proposed Institute of Government monograph about the revisions. All materials have been arranged chronologically. A copy of the 1932 Constitutional Commission report is also included.Back to Top
