Columbus Golf Association Records (Ms. 82)



The minutes of the Columbus Golf Association from 1949 through 1972. The records detail the management of the Columbus golf course by the members of the golf association, and document the rejection by the association of Willie Fitzgerald's application for membership in 1969. As the minutes report, Fitzgerald, who was black, was rejected because of Article II, Section 1 of the bylaws. The records were donated to the library on September 4, 2007 by Todd Barten.
