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
