James, a native of Crittenden County, Ky, became a lawyer in 1891, following in his father's footsteps. He involved himself in Kentucky Democratic politics at an early age. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1903-1911. He won election to the U.S. Senate in 1912, and served as permanent chairman of the 1912 and 1916 Democratic National Conventions. He died in 1918, while campaigning for a second term. The papers are a microfilm copy of letters, a broadside, a photograph, and a biographical sketch of Ollie M. James. The letters consist of two from Woodrow Wilson, one from Joseph Tumulty, and one from A.S. Burleson. Wilson congratulates James on a campaign victory (1912) and on a "remarkable speech." The broadside announces a James speech. Arranged chronologically. James, Ollie M. (Ollie Murray), 1871-1918. Burleson, Albert Sidney, 1863-1937. Tumulty, Joseph P. (Joseph Patrick), 1879-1954.
