Scope and contents

The Third Term Series represents Jackson's final term as Mayor of Atlanta, during the years of 1989 to 1993; it is also the largest series in the collection. In the beginning of Jackson's third term, a Transitional Task Force was established to identify candidates for administrative appointments and staffing, the creation of departments, organizational structure and policy. Also during this term, Jackson was working diligently to bring the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games to Atlanta. This series contains correspondence which spans the duration of his third term. Of particular interest, the series includes documents related to various City of Atlanta Departments, MARTA, Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, and Underground Atlanta. There are also materials about notable people and political figures as well as businesses and organizations.
