Writings by Tezzvant W. Anderson

Identifier: Series 8

Scope and Contents

This series contains carbon copies of articles Anderson wrote when he was a reporter for the "Pittsbugh Courier". He used four bylines: "Courier Press Service"; "Courier Roving Reporter"; "Dateline: Georgia"; and "Report from Dixie." Quite frequently the different bylines shared the same subject matter, especially those concerning political or legal issues. His writings under "Courier Press Service" and "Courier Roving Reporter" are both for the national and the Georgia editions of the "Courier". His "Dateline: Georgia" articles were written in a "gossip column" style and usually featured profiles on prominent Georgians and social events, in addition to news stories. The 12 articles under the byline "Report from Dixie" were written at the end of his career and are similar to an editorial in style. The articles found in the "Pittsbugh Courier" subseries do not have a header from one of his four usual bylines, but are clearly written for the "Courier". "Other Writings" contains a few essays not written for the "Courier", as well as notepads of his notes written when researching stories.

Titles in quotation marks are the titles written by Anderson. Titles not in quotation marks have been created by the archivist, in the absence of Anderson's titles, and succinctly reflect the content of the article. If more than one article appears on a page, the titles in the folder list are seperated by a "//" symbol. Most of the writings are undated unless otherwise noted.
