[Identification of item],  Bert T. Combs Collection, 1959-1990, 96MS7, Special Collections, University of Kentucky Libraries, Lexington. Bert T. Combs was born in Clay County, Kentucky in 1911. He attended Cumberland College, and he graduated from the University of Kentucky Law School in 1937. After graduating with his law degree and serving in World War II, Combs began his rise in politics. Serving as judge on the Kentucky Court of Appeals, Combs ran unsuccessfully for the governor's office in 1955. His attempt at the state's helm four years later made him Kentucky's 46th governor. Under his leadership, the state legislature enacted a three percent sales tax, which made possible many of the programs initiated during his administration.  New roads such as the Bert T. Combs Mountain Parkway, the creation of the UK Community College system and aid to education are some of the areas associated with his tenure as governor. Following his term as governor, Combs served as judge on the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals from 1967 to 1971. A member of the law firm Wyatt, Tarrant and Combs, the former governor and judge became the lead counsel for the lawsuit that culminated in the Kentucky Supreme Court ruling the state's system of funding public education unconstitutional.  The court decision led to the passage of the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990.  Bert Combs died in 1991. 1911 Born to Stephen and Martha (Jones) Combs in Clay County, Kentucky. 1927-1937 Attended Cumberland College, the Univeristy of Kentucky, and was employed by the Kentucky Department of Highways. 1937- L.L.B.

This court decision led to the passage of the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990 by the Kentucky General Assembly. The collection consists of over 130 boxes of papers, photographs, and audio-visual recordings. This collection primarily documents Combs' term as Governor of Kentucky from 1959-1963, but also covers, to a lesser extent, his other political activities as well. A detailed guide listing folder titles, with introductory descriptions to each series, has been produced. Files are arranged either chronologically or alphabetically, according to the system established by Combs' staff. The Oral History Program also houses interviews that were conducted with Combs on subjects such as his role in the lawsuit that led to the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990, and the political careers of such notable Kentuckians as John Sherman Cooper, Edward F. Prichard, and A.B. "Happy" Chandler.
