Biographical Note

Born on 4 September 1913 in Poplar Springs, Mississippi, Carroll Gartin attended Meridian High School, Jones Junior College, and the University of Mississippi. After graduating with a law degree from the Jackson School of Law in 1935 and passing the bar a year later, Gartin opened a law practice in Laurel and soon became an acting city judge. In 1941, he served as secretary-manager of the South Mississippi Fair, promoting agriculture and community development. That same year Gartin enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent twenty months overseas during World War II. In 1942, he married Janie Elizabeth Gavin of Stafford Springs, Mississippi.

Upon returning to his hometown after the war in 1945, the young veteran ran without opposition in a Laurel mayoral campaign to fill an unexpired term. He won a second term in 1948, again without opposition. In 1951, Gartin entered state politics as a Democrat and defeated Jimmy Arrington in a run-off to become Lieutenant Governor. Serving under the administration of Governor Hugh White (1952-1956), Gartin announced his candidacy for the seat of U.S. Senator James O. Eastland after the incumbent had publicly expressed a desire to retire. Gartin opted to continue his 1953 campaign despite the senator's decision to enter the race. Strongly condemning the recent Supreme Court Brown decision in favor of desegregation, Eastland won the bitter primary and the election. Voters reelected Gartin to the lieutenant governorship in 1955 where he served under Governor J.P. Coleman's administration from 1956 to 1960. In 1959, Gartin lost the race against Ross Barnett for the state's highest office, but he returned to his familiar lieutenant governor post after defeating Evelyn Gandy in a 1963 run-off.

Gartin died from a heart attack on 19 December 1966 while serving under the administration of Governor Paul B. Johnson Jr. He had announced his candidacy for the next gubernatorial election and was expected to be a strong contender against Ross Barnett and Bill Waller. Gartin's body lay in state under the State Capitol Rotunda and the governor issued a proclamation setting ten days of mourning across the state. The funeral service took place at Highland Baptist Church in Laurel where Gartin had served as deacon. Members of the legislature were honorary pallbearers, and burial occurred at Lake Park Cemetery. Gartin was survived by his wife, a daughter (Patricia Gartin Blair of Columbus), and a son (William Carroll Gartin Jr. of Jackson).

Gartin was a member of the Masons, the Shriners, the O.E.S., the Knights of Pythias, the Odd Fellows, the Rebeltah Lodge, the Exchange Club, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the 40 and 8. In addition, he served as permanent chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Convention from 1956 to 1964. Gartin was a member of the Board of Trustees of State Mental Hospitals from 1947 through 1952 and a member of the State Building Commission from 1956 through 1960. From 1952 through 1964, Gartin acted as vice-chairman of the Agricultural & Industrial Board.

Gartin possessed a keen sense of humor and a warm smile. By virtue of his office as lieutenant governor, he also acted as president of the state senate where he demonstrated fairness and an ability to keep legislative business rolling. Gartin championed industrial development and educational improvements. In fact, he played a key role in legislative passage of teacher salary raises in both 1964 and 1966. Although a segregationist, Gartin never adopted demagogue tactics, a restraint which observers claim lost Gartin elections for higher office. In his last election campaign, Gartin promised to "work for unity rather than division, for peace among our people rather than agitation," also stating that "[t]here is no place in the society of Mississippians for either black power or white bullying."

Access Restrictions

The Caroll Gartin Collection is open for research. This collection is stored at an off-site facility. Researchers interested in using this collection must contact Archives and Special Collections at least two business days in advance of their planned visit.

For preservation reasons, access to original recordings is restricted; however, digital counterparts are available to researchers in the Carroll Gartin Digital Collection at http://clio.lib.olemiss.edu/cdm/landingpage/collection/gartin. Although descriptions for all of the collection’s recordings are available to anyone on the internet, only some of the recordings are accessible on the web due to copyright. Researchers may review restricted recordings via onsite computer terminals in the J.D. Williams Library.

Copyright Restrictions

Publication rights are reserved for Jane Gartin and her children, Patricia Gartin Blair and William Carroll Gartin Jr.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

Additions

No further additions are expected to this collection.

Acquisition Information

Carroll Gartin's widow, Jane Gartin, donated her husband's papers to the University of Mississippi in 1967. Materials were accessioned as number 76-22.

Processing Information

Leigh McWhite, Political Papers Archivist, completed the introductory notes to the finding aid in 2007. Student worker David Steele and intern Pamela Williamson organized the files. Pamela Williamson, Ellie Campbell, and Courtney Metz created the box and folder listing in 2006-2007. Although the original file titles were preserved, curators imposed organization upon a haphazard arrangement of files and boxes.

In 2010-2011, a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services enabled the archive to preserve and digitize all the recordings in the Gartin Collection. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed as part of this project do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
