Welcome to A Centennial Celebration of Congressman G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery, a virtual exhibit commemorating the 100th birthday of Congressman Sonny Montgomery, a WWII and Korean War veteran, an alumnus of MSU, and a beloved former congressman from Mississippi's 3rd congressional district. 

This exhibit is a collaborative effort between the Congressional and Political Research Center, the Digital Preservation and Access Unit, and the MaxxSouth Digital Media Center, all of MSU Libraries.

Explore introductory information, individual themed "exhibit cases," and more via the links on the right side of the screen.

The Biographical Photo Essay is a collection of images with text overlay, arranged in chronological order to represent key moments in Montgomery's life. To enlarge the images, click on each, then click the thumbnail on the File page, and it will pull up a high-resolution version of the image that you can zoom to read more clearly.

The images and documents in the three exhibit cases can also be expanded by clicking on the image.

All images, documents, and artifacts are from the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Papers, housed in the Congressional and Political Research Center at MSU Libraries.
