George Berry, Reflections on Georgia Politics
From Russell Library
George Berry discusses the political career of James Carmichael, including the 1946 governor's race against Eugene Talmadge and three governors controversy. Berry served as deputy chief administrative officer in Mayor Ivan Allen's administration and under Mayor Sam Massell as chief administrative officer during Atlanta's critical transition from primarily white to mixed race leadership. In 1983, Berry became the commissioner of Industry, Trade and Tourism for the state of Georgia. He remained in that position until 1990, when he ran an unsuccessful campaign for lieutenant governor.
