Most of the portraits are cropped from the composite portraits of the 1874, 1876, 1878, 1880, 1882, and 1884 state legislatures. Unless otherwise noted, all other portraits are from public domain books and newspapers. There is also a portrait of some members of the 1890 legislature, but it is unlabeled.

Apart from sources like newspapers, census records, and the Mississippi House and Senate journals (see excerpts below), the following books contain a great deal of information about these men, and you will find quotes from them scattered throughout the individual pages.
