The Ruby McCollum Story

Jeffrey Rowland

“My dad was the Clerk of Circuit Court at Suwannee County. My dad kept the gun from the Ruby McCollum case. He was in charge of the evidence. There was a trial back in ’52. Ruby was accused of shooting the white doctor, Doctor Adams. And this is the gun that I have, from the case, that Ruby used to shoot the doctor. “

“I would like for people to see the, the truth. Y'know, what went on in a small town. And, really see what, how whites and blacks were treated back in the 50s.”
