Printed manuscript, [ca. 1912], “Governor Blease’s Record as to Negroes,” handbill describing three separate instances between 1910 and 1911 in which South Carolina governor Coleman Livingston Blease (1868-1942) had pardoned or paroled African Americans convicted of violent crimes against white citizens in Lexington and Richland counties. Although unsigned, the handbill appears to have been circulated by a campaign opponent.
