Biographical/Historical note

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE -- Leslie J. Winner was born in Asheville, N.C., on October 24, 1950. She attended Brown University (A.B., 1972) and Northeastern University (J.D., 1976). Admitted to the bar in 1976, Winner came to Charlotte as a law clerk to US District Court Judge James B. McMillan. In 1977, she took a position with the law firm of Ferguson, Watt, Wallas, and Adkins. After working as a lobbyist for Legal Services of North Carolina in 1981, Winner became interested in voting rights. Later that same year she began the Gingles v. Edmisten case. Winner served as president of the North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys in 1983. She withdrew her 1984 bid for a seat in the North Carolina General Assembly because of a conflict in interest as she prepared the Gingles case the Supreme Court. However, Winner was elected to the Assembly in 1992 as a senator from Mecklenburg County.

Biographical/Historical note

HISTORICAL NOTE -- The case of Gingles v. Edmisten challenged the existing voting districts for the North Carolina General Assembly as being racially biased. As the case began in 1981, Winner worked with prominent lawyer Julius Chambers, who had represented the plaintiffs in the landmark case on school busing, Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education [see Julius Chambers Papers]. On June 30, 1986, the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that North Carolina illegally weakened the African-American voters' power in state-house elections in Mecklenburg and five other North Carolina legislative districts.

Scope and Contents note

The Leslie Winner Papers deal with the legislative redistricting case of Gingles v. Edmisten. The collection contains much research material, correspondence, court documents, minutes from North Carolina General Assembly committee meetings, and notes taken by Winner. The collection basically divides itself into two categories, the plaintiff and the defendant. These two categories are again divided between the district court and the supreme court.

Series 12: STATISTICS 1971-1983

Scope and Contents note

This series is comprised of statistics referred to in exhibits presented to the courts. The 1980 US Census Report has been omitted from the collection because it is located in the Documents Unit of this library and elsewhere. The last folder of this series contains a sampling of the computer generated material used by Grofman in his reports to Winner and the courts. The folder also contains the computer programs he used. Only a sampling of the material that relates to Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Fred Alexander has been kept because of the bulk of the original material and space constraints. However, by using Grofman's program, the 1980 Census Report and the data listed below one could effectively recreate the data if one desired.
