The Warren Ashby Papers date from 1949 to 1980 and relate primarily to Ashby’s biographical research and writing on Frank Porter Graham. The collection contains correspondence; research materials; speeches; photographs; typescripts; interview transcripts and tape recordings; and sound recordings of political announcements used during Graham's 1950 Senate campaign.
While a professor of religious studies at UNCG, Ashby was also a vocal proponent of civil rights and was involved in several local activist organizations. Materials selected for inclusion in this project reflect Ashby’s interest in civil rights and desegregation.
