Scope and Content of the Papers
The Jeffrey G. Jones Collection consists of research materials collected by Jones from 1993 to 1995 in the process of writing his thesis, Georgia and the ERA, for his master's degree in history at Georgia State University.
Included are a copy of the thesis, items related to its completion (list of deadlines, thesis prospectus, procedures for conducting oral history interviews, and a computer diskette of research notes), and research files compiled by Jones. The latter are filed by headings for personal names, organizational names, and topical subjects. The files consist of newspaper citations and a bibliography Jones compiled; ERA-related research papers he produced for GSU history classes; maps; as well as notes and photocopies Jones made from non-GSU collections (Carter Center, Emory University, and Georgia Department of Archives) of personal and organizational papers relating to his thesis topic.
Completing the collection are eleven audio cassettes containing ten oral history interviews Jones conducted from December 1994 through November of 1995, with women who were actively for, or against, the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in Georgia as well as his abstracts for nine of those ten interviews. Some of these interviews supplement those conducted as part of the Georgia Women's Movement Project which are located in the Special Collections Department.
