LESTER G. MADDOX
The controversial former Georgia Governor signs a $50 check to the Conservative Caucus.
Check signed: "Lester G. Maddox", 6x2¾. Marietta, Georgia, 1983 March 8. Check #329, drawn on his personal account at the Bank of Georgia, payable to "The Conservative Caucus, Inc." for $50. Entirely filled out by Maddox. Lester Maddox (1915-2003) was charged with assaulting five black ministers who tried to eat at his Atlanta Restaurant the day after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights act. (He was subsequently acquitted by an all-white jury.) Maddox, who wielded an axe handle as a symbol of his opposition to desegregation but never actually used it on anybody, did close his restaurant rather than serve black customers. Maddox was later elected Governor of Georgia (1967-1971). Prohibited from a second term by Georgia's constitution, he was elected Lieutenant Governor (1971-1975), often opposing the policies of his successor as Governor, Jimmy Carter. The year he signed this check, Maddox was diagnosed with the cancer which would finally claim his life 20 years later. Ink stamps front and verso. Fine condition. A portion of the screen image has been obscured to protect sensitive information. The original check does not contain these concealing marks.
