    Description

    Jimmie Davis Personal Scrapbook. During a long and truly eclectic career, Jimmie Davis was successful as both a singer-songwriter of Country and Gospel tunes, as well as Governor of Louisiana -- and he often combined the two, performing music during his campaigns. Collected in this leather-bound scrapbook by Davis himself are numerous newspaper clippings, photos, and handbills dating from 1948-53 that detail some of his time spent as a singer, a governor, and a singing governor. Especially noteworthy is a 9.5" x 6.5" handbill advertising Davis on a double bill with Harpo Marx at the Flamingo Room. The scrapbook is in great condition with only a light amount of wear to the covers, and a light to moderate amount of tanning to the pages and contents, to be expected with the age of the material.
