BUFORD ELLINGTON The U.S. politician who served as Governor of Tennessee signs this black and white photo Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Buford Ellington", in black felt tip, b/w, 8x10. Earl Buford Ellington (1907-1972) served two nonconsecutive terms as Governor of Tennessee (1959-1963, 1967-1971). He was floor manager for presidential candidate Lyndon Johnson at the 1960 Democratic Convention, remaining a strong ally of LBJ when the latter achieved the Presidency. The contrast in Ellington's two terms reflected a changing of attitudes in the South. Running for his first term, he called himself "an old-fashioned segregationist." On the campaign trail eight years later, he declared that it was time to “bury the word and practice of segregation.” Fine condition.
