Scope and Content of the Papers
These papers consist of two folders and one oversize folder of photocopied printed materials, part of one reel of microfilm, and twenty-three photographs. The first folder of printed materials contains three pages of typewritten biographical material on Cotton Carrier, including information on his professional activities for WSB Radio, WAGA-TV, and the Lowery Music Group, and some details on his army service during World War II. One additional page lists Carrier's memberships, offices, and honors obtained from various professional and social organizations. The second folder contains two handbills advertising Jane and Cotton Carrier's appearances in Georgia festivals, and an issue of Mason Mint, a periodical published by the Mason Candy Company (a sponsor of WSB's "Barn Dance"), which includes an article titled "Mason Sponsors a Barn Dance." On microfilm are two scrapbooks relating to Carrier's professional activities. Included in the oversize folder is a 1980 issue of Marquee and a photocopy of an undated issue of Country Song Roundup.
The photographs, which are copies made from the originals, mainly document Carrier's career during the 1940s and 1950s, with images of him, his wife, his brother Billy with the other Swanee River Boys, and other musicians with whom he performed at WSB Radio and WAGA-TV. Also among the photographs are two pictures of the awards ceremony of the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983.
