Administrative History

The Godwin Advertising Agency was established in Jackson, Mississippi, by George William Godwin, Sr. (1903-1968) as Dixie Advertisers in 1937. Godwin was born in Graball, Morehouse Parish, Louisiana, to Thomas Frank Godwin (d. 1950) and Mary Didlake Godwin. His father had worked for newspapers in Mississippi and Louisiana and bought the Crystal Springs Meteor newspaper around 1919. George Godwin attended the University of Mississippi and he also worked in printing and for a Laurel newspaper before becoming the publishing editor of the Terry  Headlight in 1927. He also took over the  Meteor from his father in 1947. He served on the Mississippi Press Association (MPA) board and was president in 1942-1943. The MPA paid tribute to Godwin’s contribution to journalism and the Association at its June 1968 convention. Godwin married Eugenia Birdsong (1907-1986) in 1926 and they had one son, George W. Godwin, Jr. (1928-1999) who joined his parent’s agency in 1948.

Godwin also moved into the field of public relations in the 1920s, serving as the advertising manager for Mississippi Power and Light from 1928 to 1937 and gaining an appointment in 1936 from Governor Hugh White to the state Advertising Commission. The agency he established the following year with his wife, called Dixie Advertisers for the first 20 years, began with one client—the First National Bank of Mississippi—but quickly became the dominant firm in Mississippi. His company participated in the origination of the “Balance Agriculture With Industry” (BAWI) concept and later in the establishment of the Agricultural and Industrial Board, the state agency which administered the BAWI program and other development activities. The Godwin firm was employed by the Board to promote Mississippi through travel shows and the Miss Hospitality contests which began in 1947. George Godwin was also heavily involved with planning the Civil War centennial events between 1960 and 1962. Godwin was unofficial advisor on economic development to six administrations as well as private corporations and public area development organizations. He was instrumental in helping locate many industrial enterprises in the state including the Standard Oil complex on the Gulf Coast. His agency’s ideas included the “Buy in Mississippi” program of the 1950s, the “Bill of Rights for Business and Industry” in 1960 and the “Agriculture-Industry-Commerce” program in 1964. It also led efforts to establish a viable state research function which culminated in the creation of the Mississippi Research and Development Center in 1964. The Godwin Advertising Agency innovated national advertising by state governments for the purposes of attracting capital investment and industrial plant locations.

The Godwins were personally involved in Democratic Party politics and the company conducted campaigns for many state and local politicians, including Hugh White, Fielding Wright, Paul B. Johnson, Jr., and Charles Sullivan. George Godwin, Jr. is credited with writing much of Governor Johnson’s 1964 inaugural address. While George Godwin, Sr. was an advertising innovator, he was also a traditionalist on many issues such as free enterprise, states’ rights and individual responsibility. Like many of his generation in the white community, he was a staunch segregationist. As a delegate to the 1944 National Democratic Party convention, he was an organizer of the Mississippi delegation’s abortive rebellion which cast the state’s votes for Virginia senator Harry F. Byrd. Similarly, at the 1948 convention, he was one of the Mississippi delegates who ‘walked out’ and formed the States’ Rights or ‘Dixiecrat’ faction and his agency worked on the States’ Rights Democrats campaign. He was a charter member of the Citizens’ Council and was an officer of the Jackson chapter and a board member until his death.

The Godwin Advertising Agency was the first nationally recognized advertising agency from Mississippi and by the 1960s it was doing business with clients throughout the southeast. George Godwin was awarded the 1961 Advertising Federation of America’s ‘Silver Medal’ for his service to advertising. His agency was the first from Mississippi to be accepted into the American Association of Advertising Agencies, and Godwin served as an officer of the Association’s Southwest chapter. After George Godwin, Sr.’s, death, the company changed from a partnership owned by the Godwin family to a corporation with a management including President George Lemon Sugg, George Godwin, Jr., Charles E. Carmichael, John E. Fontaine Thomas L. Spengler, Jr., and William E. Spell. The company continued to be influential with state administrations during the 1970s and 1980s, and by the time George Godwin, Jr. retired in 1997 as head of the renamed company, the GodwinGroup was among the 50 largest advertising firms in the southeast.
