Biographical & Historical Sketch
Alfred Holt Stone (1870-1955) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 16, 1870. He graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1891 with his LL. D., and in 1916 received an LL. B. from the university. In 1928, he received another LL. D. from Southwestern in Memphis, Tennessee. On June 25, 1896 he married Mary Bailey Ireys. From 1893 to 1932 Stone worked as a lawyer and cotton planter in Mississippi. Stone served as President of the Mississippi Historical Society in 1912-1913, and was the author of a history of the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments as well as a collection of articles on race. Stone also served in the Mississippi legislature from 1916 to 1923 and in 1932 was named Tax Commissioner and Chairman of the State Tax Commission, a post he held until his death on May 11, 1955.

Scope & Content Note
Most of the material in the Stone Collection is related to the issue of race in the southern United States.
Box 1 contains letters from African-Americans to Stone's wife, Mary (Folder 2), transcriptions of articles on slavery from antebellum newspapers (Folder 4), early twentieth century bibliographies of works on African-Americans (Folder 5), material from the Commission on Interracial Cooperation (Folder 6), and early twentieth century magazine and newspaper clippings on race (Folders 7-9).
Box 2 contains books and pamphlets ranging from the antebellum period to the early twentieth century on a variety of topics, but the majority of these works are race-related. Box 3 contains oversized material, primarily early twentieth century newspapers, or pages from them, which contain articles on race. Several of the newspapers contain extensive coverage of the St. Louis race riot of 1917.
