Description
Scope and content: Typescripts of speeches and a small quantity of miscellaneous documents, audio recordings, and photographs, ranging in dates from 1950 to 1975, regarding Beverly Briley’s public career as Davidson County Judge (1950-1963) and first mayor (1963-1975) of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee. These materials show an effort to explain and promote consolidated government to local citizens and officials. The items were selected and kept by Mayor Briley for his own personal use.
Series I. Speech typescripts, 1954-1972, focus on efficiency and streamlining of county government, and were delivered to groups both national and local. Included are: Briley's Inaugural Address (1963); annual State of Metro addresses (1964-1970); and plans for the future, along with speeches on local issues and a small quantity of miscellaneous documents.
Series II. Audio recordings, 1965-1973, include some meetings between Briley and community leaders on various subjects. Three of the recordings are related to civil unrest in Nashville following a speaking engagement at Vanderbilt University by black activist Stokely Carmichael in 1967. Many recordings of local radio interviews and public service “Metro Action Reports” are examples of ongoing efforts to keep the public informed about their government. While Mayor Briley is not present on all recordings, other individuals from Metro government and the community are the speakers. Also included are some campaign jingles.
Series III. Photographs, 1950-1975, predominently show Mayor Briley at various events in and around Nashville. However, because of his expertise in innovative local government, many images show him speaking in other locations around the country, often pictured with notable politicians of the day. Other subjects include: campaigns and elections; Metro meetings and Metro-related activities; a large quantity of ribbon-cuttings, ground-breakings and similar grand opening activities for a wide variety of buildings and businesses; the granting or receiving of awards; meetings with celebrities or planned press events; banquets; and numerous images of Briley with children.
