George and Pansy Slappey were distinguished Georgia educators and writers who throughout their careers amassed an interesting variety of material. Mrs. Slappey was named a fellow of the International Institute of Arts and Letters in 1961.
Scope and Content Note
The collection highlights include manuscripts of both published and unpublished works relating directly to the problems facing Georgia education, educational reform, and the public school system operation. Also included are the scrapbook and notes made by the Slappeys when they served as Georgia delegates to the World Organization of the Teaching Profession in Glasgow, Scotland in August 1947. There are genealogical source materials on the Slappey, Aiken, Shi, Hollis, Singleton, Howard and allied families. Included are two miniatures of Mr. Slappey's maternal grandparents, painted in 1851 by William Frey. Mrs. Slappey's interest in Jimmy Carter's presidential aspirations is apparent in the detailed campaign scrapbooks kept by her, which are a part of this collection. In addition, the collection contains other clippings of articles on educational, political, and historical matters relating to the Slappeys. There is a small amount of correspondence with various educators and civic leaders. The first Japanese edition of "Gone With the Wind" (volume one only), presented by John Marsh to George Slappey (a former roommate in Kentucky) is housed with the Margaret Mitchell Marsh collection.
Organized into five series : Series 1. Biographical and genealogical material; Series 2. Correspondence, diaries and writings; Series 3. Printed material; Series 4. Photographs, scrapbooks and certificates; and Series 5. Artifacts.
