The Emory Folmar Papers

  • US US-almoca 2006.001
  • Collection
  • 1977 - 1999

This collection documents Emory Folmar’s twenty-two year tenure (1977-1999) as mayor of Montgomery, Alabama. While the collection includes personal materials, such as birthday cards and invitations to social functions in Montgomery, it primarily consists of materials documenting Folmar’s political career, including his work with the Montgomery police and fire departments, as well as his work within the Alabama Republican Party. 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. The Folmar Papers are largely textual and include memoranda, minutes and agendas, financial and legal material, clippings, publications, and related printed matter. Other formats in the collection include photographs and artifacts such as plaques, ephemera, and campaign paraphernalia.
