Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Record Group

  • US US-almoca Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Record Group
  • Collection
  • ca. 1878-1985

This record group consists of records created by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office during the course of conducting normal business. This large collection primarily contains two types of records: inmate mugshots and logs documenting the processing of persons accused of committing various crimes. Inmate mugshots include those who took part in the 1953 Montgomery Bus Boycott, including Jo Ann Robinson and Rosa Parks. Inmate mugshots also include photographs of 1961 Freedom Riders arrested in Montgomery, Alabama. The logs documenting the intake of persons accused of a crime generally include the individual’s name,
race, age, sex, offense accused of, etc. The records listed under Administering Internal Operations-Managing the Agency; (9.03) Historical and Publicity Files; Box 1, folders 1-3, may serve as evidence of early convict-leasing in Montgomery County, Alabama. The folders’ titles, composed by another archivist, map a connection between the Montgomery County Alabama Sheriff’s Office, Dr. Robert Barber, and inmate labor in 1870 related to the Freeman’s Bend Plantation. Robert Barber served as the secretary of the 1868 convention to rewrite Alabama’s constitution. Further research is needed to uncover more information regarding
Barber, as well as Freeman’s Bend Plantation.

Significant themes and subjects in the Folmar Papers include the development of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and the Montgomery Zoo, Folmar’s involvement with Maxwell Air Force Base, and his relationship with Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W Bush. Much of the collection concerns itself with records related to Folmar’s unsuccessful 1982 campaign for governor of Alabama. Additionally, a number of records relate to the social activities of Folmar’s wife Anita, including her involvement with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Montgomery Council on Aging, and firearm safety training courses.
