To whom it may concern,

I reached out to the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies as suggested. Though the library has many relevant records in its George Ervin Perdue collection, they do not have former Gov. Perdue's personal email records. This is what they had to say:

"At the time that we received the official papers of Governor Perdue we did not receive his personal email and we understood that the Governor’s office retained those files. I do not know the current status of these emails, but you might contact the governor’s office of the current administration and inquire."

Can you confirm that these email records are at no other location within the Georgia Archives system?

From: Kayla Barrett

We are in receipt of your follow-up request of April 19, 2017. The Georgia Archives does not have any email records from the administration of Gov. Perdue, either personal or constituent correspondence. We concur with the advice of the Richard B. Russell Library staff that you contact the Governor's Office.
