Medgar and Myrlie Evers Papers

The Medger Wiley and Myrlie Beasley Evers Papers were presented to MDAH in 2002 by Mrs. Myrlie Evers-Williams. The collection currently includes Evers and Beasley family papers dating from the early 1900s to around July 1964, when Myrlie Evers and her children moved to Claremont, California.

The papers are divided into four subgroups: the papers of Medgar Evers as Mississippi field secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; family papers of Medgar Evers; family papers of Myrlie Evers; and records relating to the case of the State of Mississippi v. Byron De La Beckwith.
