The Georgia Government Documentation Project (GGDP) documents the state’s political heritage through oral history interviews and collections of associated papers. The GGDP collection includes more than 250 interviews with former governors, legislators, women in politics, African American political activists and leaders, journalists, and numerous other public figures. In addition to the interviews generated by the project, the GGDP actively collects interviews conducted by other scholars of Georgia politics.
