Franklin A. Clark, and Amanda Tucker. Alabama Prisons. Report of Committee Appointed by the Governor Pursuant to House Joint Resolution #63.

[Montgomery, AL?]: The Committee, (1945). First edition (?), a reproduced typescript. 4to. (1), 2, 9, 5, 8, 6, 10, (3) pp. [printed rectos only]. The committee was composed of Gill, a physician and state health officer, Clark, a professor of food hygiene and health, and Tucker, a nutritionist; it inspected each of the state's prisons, Kilby, Draper, Atmore, and Julia Tutwiler (women's), the state Cattle Ranch, and all of its road camps, paying particular attention to medical and dental services, rehabilitation work, and food services and nutrition, noting many deficiencies in all areas and making recommendations for remediation in detail. The races were largely segregated, but seemed to have shared fairly equally the poor conditions, but with African Americans bearing the brunt of the road camp work. The "History of the Alabama Department of Corrections," on that organization's website, makes no mention of this report and none of its findings or recommendations are included in the ADOC website timeline. Apparently not recorded on OCLC. Some age soiling, else very good. Brad-bound at top (final leaf with tear at brad). (#7545). Item #60374

Price: $350.00
