Preface


Claxton, Joseph E., Shaw, Yonna Windham, The Journal of Southern Legal History


It is with great pride, we present you this edition of The Journal of Southern Legal History. Our editor in chief, Charles R.

Lanier Anderson III of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. These fine young Georgia attorneys have made an extraordinary commitment of their time and talents to this issue.

Ms. Yonna Shaw also deserves a special vote of appreciation for her coordination of the wonderful interview with the late Governor Samuel Ernest Vandiver, Jr. that is described in more detail below. Yonna was the "good shepherd" every step of the way in bringing the Vandiver project to the printed page.

We would personally like to thank three women for their assistance in preparing the oral history. First, we would like to thank Mrs. Betty Vandiver for her graciousness and her support. Second, we would like to thank Governor Vandiver's daughter, Jane Vandiver Kidd, for writing the Introduction to the Covernor's oral history. …
