Biographical/Historical Note

Louis S. Moore was chairman of the Railroad Committee in Thomasville, Georgia, and a state senator. Much like the General Assembly at the time, in the early 1920s he was contemplating the placement of a terminal somewhere on the coastline of Georgia.

Malcolm B. McKinnon was born in Brunswick, Georgia, in August 1882 and died in November 1937 at the age of 55. He was the mayor of Brunswick from 1923 to 1925 and wrote to Louis Moore about the construction and operation of a state port terminal somewhere on the coastline in his first year. From 1925 to 1937, he was on the Glynn County Board of Commissioners, and was chairman of that board from 1927 to 1937. He worked hard to acquire a municipal airport for the area, which was realized after his death and given his name.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of one piece of correspondence from Malcolm B. McKinnon, Mayor of Brunswick, Georgia, to Louis S. Moore, State Senator from Thomasville, Georgia, concerning the proposed construction and operation of a State Port Terminal on the coast of Georgia, and the offering of Brunswick as a location for such a terminal.
