As Lieutenant Governor and Governor of the state, Paul B. Johnson received copies of regular reports prepared by the director of the Sovereignty Commission. These reports comprise nine boxes of the Paul B. Johnson Family Papers and cover the period from 1964 to 1968. The reports were clearly identified but scattered throughout the Johnson Family Papers in no order. There is much overlap between materials in the Sovereignty Commission series and those in the Highway Patrol series, since the two organizations worked together to monitor Civil Rights activities in the state from 1960 to 1968.
The collection number is M 191. Reports are arranged by date; other materials by subject.
