  A.S. HARRISON JR. DIES; FORMER VIRGINIA GOVERNOR   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Harrison, who became governor in 1962, said Virginia had to be ``more than money-honest.'' In a frugal state of granitic integrity, he said the time had come to pay more heed to people's needs.
Harrison once said, ``I was not `urged by countless friends' to become a candidate, as politicians sometimes claim.
In 1958, Harrison wrote to Byrd that desegregation was inevitable.

Harrison once said she wished more Virginians could visit the mansion, so she gave the mansion to the people in the form of a booklet of color photographs of its rooms and gardens.
Harrison, who was known for her devotion to her home and family, said, "An 88-cent TV table is the only piece of furniture that's ours, and I doubt if we average two nights a week here for dinner."
During their courtship, Harrison often dined at the Barkley home and wondered why he was always served "stale bread." He was told the "stale bread" was beaten biscuits, which the family ate every day.

 TIME Magazine Archive Article -- Byrd's Nest -- Jul 21, 1961
In a surprising Democratic primary election in Virginia last week, Albertis Sydney Harrison Jr., the state's personable, 54-year-old attorney general, won the party's gubernatorial nomination with ease as he whipped Lieutenant Governor A.E.S. Stephens, 60, by some 45,000 votes.
What was surprising was that Harrison was the hand-picked candidate of aging Democratic Senator Harry Flood Byrd, 74, and the rumormongers were saying that the political nest, feathered so faithfully by Byrd over three decades, was falling apart.
All of Byrd's oldtime cronies had either died or retired; the party was still scarred by a split over the methods of combating school integration; population was shifting away from Byrd's rural strongholds.

Attorney General Harrison said Virginia's pupil placement law, which the General Assembly amended in 1958, was still in operation and so was the state's pupil placement board.
The school desegregation controversy made clarification of the pupil placement law necessary because localities continued to assign pupils and take requests yet the state pupil placement law appeared to give full control over these local decisions to the state board.
Harrison said the best way to obtain clarification about the scope of the law would come either by pending litigation in Charlottesville, Arlington, Norfolk, or Newport News, or by an independent proceeding.

 The TV Image, by Paul T. David
Television, having committed itself to exclusive coverage of a single subject for the equivalent of three to four calendar days, had the maximum impact, both quantitatively and qualitatively, of which it is capable.
Governor Albertis S. Harrison, Jr., of Virginia, for example, meeting the camera late Saturday for comment, said, “I never in my life expected to spend six hours looking at television, but last night I did.”
It does not take a Nielson survey to suggest that very nearly the entire population was looking at television for many hours that Friday afternoon and evening, with lesser but still tremendous viewing audiences on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Etheridge, who had won the first honorary award of being the state's outstanding city treasurer, made a strong bid in 1961 to become state treasurer in the administration of Gov.-elect Albertis S. Harrison Jr.
County treasurers and commissioners of revenue across the state urged Harrison to select Etheridge, a past president of the State Association of Treasurers; but Harrison chose to name his former campaign manager, Chesterfield County Clerk Lewis H. Vaden, for the post.
Etheridge continued modernizing the government of Virginia Beach, which probably was an even more difficult chore than being state treasurer.
