If no one has done this work in a way that provides a simple
citation, I think you can derive it from the Taylor Branch history of
the civil rights movement. The free-speech issues are a running theme
in that book, and I think I remember it being well indexed. Scot Powe,
The Warren Court, must also deal with these cases.

Subject: Not about Schiavo!
Can I impose on fellow list members for a bit of free research?
I'd like a citation for the proposition that 1950s and 1960s Southern
attempts to restrict pro-civil-rights speech involved a broad pattern of
restrictions, in which the backers of some restrictions borrowed from
and expanded on the work of backers of other restrictions. That seems
to me plainly true -- I'm not saying that there was a coherent
Pan-Southern plan there, but rather that speech-restriction movements
naturally operate this way even without deliberate planning. In any
case, I was hoping that someone would have a quick citation that I can
use for this proposition. Many thanks,
