LESTER MADDOX
The harsh critic of the federal government pays his income tax
Check signed: "Lester G. Maddox", 6x2¾. Marietta, Georgia, 1983 June 10. Check no. 370, drawn on his personal account at National Bank of Georgia, payable to "Internal Revenue Service" for "$6,760.00". Entirely filled out by Maddox, including his memo: "June 15, 1983 est. inc. taxes". 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. Ink stamps on verso shows through faintly, one touching signature Otherwise, fine condition.
