Save to active project


We would like to thank a number of individuals for their assistance in this project. Our students Randy Austin, Don Dye, Keith Gaddie, John Kuzinski, Anthony Moussios, David Price, Bobby Reid, Margaret Schuelke, and A. Brock Smith helped with the data collection. The Honorable Glen Browder, now an Alabama congressman, secured his state's election data for us in his earlier capacity as secretary of state. Robert Montjoy provided some of the Alabama data on race, and Del Dunn helped us gain access to several years of the Mississippi data. Diana Blair, Jason Kirksen, Dick Murray, Joe Stewart, and Tom Vocino were able to identify additional black candidates for us. Earl Black, Merle Black, Malcolm E. Jewell, Lee Johnston, Lloyd Jones, William R. Keech, Susan A. MacManus, and Harold W. Stanley offered expert consultation along the way. Bridget Pilcher did most of the typing.

Paul Betz and Sandra Eisdorfer, our editors at the University of North Carolina Press, provided excellent editorial guidance. The editors of the Journal of Politics, Social Science Quarterly, and Blacks in Southern Politics (New York: Praeger, 1987) permitted us to draw upon our previously published work on this topic. The curators of the Western History Collection at the University of Oklahoma kindly allowed us to examine and integrate into this study Cortez A. M. Ewing's original handwritten data from his classic runoff research of 1953. And the Bullock and Johnson clans once again showed great patience with their two scribblers.
