Title:Moncrief photograph collection

The Moncrief (Winfred) Photograph Collection consists of 890 original black-and-white negatives produced in the course of Moncrief's work as a photographer in the 1950s and 1960s. The photographs focus on Hattiesburg and the surrounding area, although there are pictures from other parts of the state. The photographs cover a variety of topics, including the 1953 Vicksburg tornado; Governor Paul B. Johnson Jr.'s 1963 election campaign and 1964 inauguration; nuclear tests at the Tatum Salt Dome in 1964; a 1965 Ku Klux Klan rally; and various civil rights activities, primarily in Hattiesburg. The civil rights activities include an Aaron Henry rally in October 1963; voter registration attempts and demonstrations in January-February 1964; August 1965 voter registration activities in Prentiss; events following the murder of Vernon Dahmer in January 1966 and its resulting trial; and demonstrations in April 1968 after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
