QUESTION: Finding documentation of "disturbances" at women's prison in Milledgeville, GA, between 1969 and 1973

question / pregunta: 

Between 1969 and 1973, there were four “disturbances” at the women’s prison in Milledgeville, Georgia. How would I find more information and documentation (newspaper articles, firsthand accounts, etc) of these "disturbances"?


Hi, thanks for your question! I recommend contacting the Special Collections Department at Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville. The contact form is here.

I searched ProQuest Historical Newspapers with the search terms [milledgeville AND prison AND (woman OR women)] from 1969- present and found nothing, from this database that includes The Atlanta Daily World (and The New York Times and other biggies) and did a similar search in LexisNexis without results, so I suggest you do follow shqippy's advice and contact the local college.
