Personal, professional, and political correspondence and other papers of the Mississippi lawyer, planter, and politician George Colin McKee (1837-1890). McKee was a "carpetbagger" and moderate Republican who represented the Vicksburg district in Congress during Reconstruction. Most of the material dates from the 20 years following the Civil War, though there are McKee family papers extending into the 20th century.
