Size 27 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 8500 items)
Abstract Professor William Kauffman Scarborough's papers document his professional academic career as a historian of the American South specializing in the study of slavery, the antebellum plantation system and economy, agriculture, the secession crisis, and the American Civil War. Spanning from his undergraduate student years in the 1950s to the near present in the years since his retirement from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Miss., the collection contains student notebooks from his undergraduate and graduate studies, extensive research notes and compiled data about slaveholders, drafts and revisions of his published works including monographs, articles, and book reviews, and correspondence with other historians including Eugene Genovese and Stanley F. Engerman. Other materials pertain to professional organizations and meetings and history conferences where he delivered papers and commentary and to his work as a referee for scholarly presses and journals. Political materials in the collection including pamphlets, newsletters, periodicals, correspondence, speeches, and ephemera reflect Scarborough's political and social conservatism and his racial views, particularly his support of segregation in the American South during the 1960s and 1970s. The papers also document his affiliations and participation in political organizations, particularly white citizens' councils. Other political items illustrate Scarborough's support of former Alabama governor George C. Wallace's multiple bids for president of the United States, his disdain of political correctness, and his defense of flying the Confederate battle flag in public spaces.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

William Kauffman Scarborough (1933- ) is a professor emeritus of history at the University of Southern Mississippi. Born 17 January 1933 in Baltimore, Md., he is the son of James Blaine Scarborough and Julia Irene Kauffman Scarborough. Raised in Annapolis, Md., Scarborough attended the University of North Carolina for his bachelor's degree in history and graduated in 1954. In 1957 he received a master's degree in history from Cornell University. He then returned to the University of North Carolina where he completed his doctoral degree in history in 1962.

Scarborough taught history at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., (1961-1963), Northeast Louisiana University in Monroe, La., (1963-1964), and the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Miss., (1964-1998). From 1996 until his retirement in 1998, he had an endowed faculty position as the Charles W. Moorman Distinguished Alumni professor of humanities.

His teaching and research specialty areas include the antebellum South, slavery and the plantation system, agriculture, the sectional controversy before the American Civil War, and the Civil War. Scarborough's major monographic works are The Overseer: Plantation Management in the Old South, Masters of the Big House: Elite Slaveholders of the Mid-Nineteenth Century South, Science and Medicine in the Old South, and The Allston’s of Chicora Wood: Wealth, Honor, and Gentility in the South Carolina Low Country. Also notable is his three-volume edition of The Diary of Edmund Ruffin.

Scarborough served in the naval reserves from 1954 to 1956. He married Patricia Estelle Carruthers with whom he had two children. In the 1960s, Scarborough was a prominent figure in Mississippi's White Citizens' Councils, which had formed in opposition to the civil rights movement of that era and supported the continuation of racial segregation.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

Professor William Kauffman Scarborough's papers document his professional academic career as a historian of the American South specializing in the study of slavery, the antebellum plantation system and economy, agriculture, the secession crisis, and the American Civil War.

Scarborough's academic career spanned from his undergraduate student years at the University of North Carolina in the 1950s through his graduate work and tenured professor appointments to the near present in the years since his retirement from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Miss. The academic and professional materials are divided into seven subseries.

Student Work contains notebooks from his undergraduate and graduate studies at Cornell University and the University of North Carolina and drafts and revisions of seminar papers, master's thesis, and doctoral dissertation.

Research Notes and Data are chiefly notecards with information gleaned from archival repositories, census data (1850 and 1860), and secondary sources that were compiled for two monographs, The Overseer: Plantation Management in the Old South and Masters of the Big House: Elite Slaveholders of the Mid-Nineteenth-Century South.

Professional Correspondence are chiefly letters and printed out email messages exchanged between Scarborough and other academic historians in the fields of southern history, particularly historians focused on slavery and plantation economy including Eugene Genovese and Stanley L. Engerman.

Book Reviews are drafts and offprints of reviews written by Scarborough primarily for scholarly history journals. The books reviewed are chiefly monographs pertaining to slavery, the antebellum plantation system and economy in the American South, the secession crisis, and American Civil War.

Referee and Consultant Work materials consist of correspondence and commentary on history monographs and journal articles for which Scarborough served as a referee.

Professional Organizations, Meetings and Conferences, and Speaking Engagements materials are chiefly papers prepared or reviewed by Scarborough for professional meetings and history conferences. Most of the papers pertain to slavery and the antebellum plantation system and economy in the American South. Of note are the papers, correspondence, transcripts, and other documents related to the 1974 MSSB-University of Rochester Conference, "Time on the Cross: A First Appraisal."

Publications materials are chiefly drafts, revisions, and reviews of Scarborough's major books including The Overseer, The Diary of Edmund Ruffin, and Masters of the Big House. Also included are materials sent to and from publishers and items pertaining to articles and essays he wrote for encyclopedias and journals.

Political materials in the collection including pamphlets, newsletters, periodicals, correspondence, speeches, and ephemera reflect Scarborough's political and social conservatism and his racial views, particularly his support of segregation in the American South during the 1960s and 1970s. The papers also document his affiliations and participation in political organizations, particularly white citizens' councils. Printed items include an almost complete run from 1961 to 1973 of The Citizen published by the Citizens Councils of America Other political items illustrate Scarborough's support of former Alabama governor George C. Wallace's multiple bids for president of the United States, his disdain of political correctness, and his defense of flying the Confederate battle flag in public spaces. Of note is material pertaining to expert testimony Scarborough gave in a Voting Rights Act court case, Boykins et al. v. City of Hattiesburg et al.

Family materials are three typescript documents pertaining to Scarborough's father James Blaine Scarborough and to the Scarborough family genealogy.

Arrangement: Chronological.

Most folder titles were derived or adapted from Scarborough's own folder labels. Original folders were retained with their contents when the folders themselves carried additional or contextual information.

Materials reflect William Kauffman Scarborough's political and social conservatism political and social conservatism and his racial views, particularly his support of segregation in the American South during the 1960s and 1970s. These papers also document his affiliations and participation in political organizations, particularly white citizens' councils. Organizations represented in the materials include Sons of Confederate Veterans, Citizen Councils of America, Jackson, Miss., Citizen Council, the Southern National Party, and the North Carolina Defenders of States Rights. Other items document Scarborough's support of former Alabama governor George C. Wallace's multiple bids for president of the United States, his disdain of political correctness, and his defense of flying the Confederate battle flag in public spaces.

Political materials are chiefly printed items such as newsletters and pamphlets from pro-segregation organizations and include an almost complete run from 1961 to 1973 of The Citizen published by the Citizens Councils of America. The series also contains slight correspondence, Confederate battle flags, Wallace campaign items, bumper stickers, and a few speeches given by Scarborough to groups such as the Southern National Party and the Rankin County, Miss., Citizen Council.

Of note is material pertaining to expert testimony Scarborough gave in a Voting Rights Act court case, Boykins et al. v. City of Hattiesburg.
