James F. Byrnes (May 2, 1879 - April 9, 1972) was a U.S. Congressman, U.S. Senator, Supreme Court Justice, Secretary of State, and Governor of South Carolina. During World War II Byrnes was nicknamed the "Assistant President" because of the power he wielded over the war effort in his position as Director of the Office of War Mobilization and Conversion and as one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's confidants. The collection of 100 photographs covers periods in government and personal photographs including those of James and Maude Byrnes.
