Title:Oral history with Mr. Brodie Crump, businessman and journalist
Date:1974 Feb. 26

Oral history. Interview conducted on February 26, 1974 with Mr. Brodie Crump at his home in Greenville, Mississippi. Crump was born in 1898 in Greenville, Mississippi. After attending Mississippi A&M College, now Mississippi State University, Crump began his business career as a cotton broker. General A. G. Paxton, commanding officer of the Dixie Division, a National Guard unit, was one of the more important buyers in the Greenville area. After retiring to his land in the 1940's, he began writing a column, "Mostly Old Stuff" for the Delta Democrat-Times after the Carter family bought out this newspaper. Both his newspaper column and his recollections in this oral history detail the past scenes of over half a century of Greenville, a Mississippi River town.

Electronic version made available through a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
