Henry Aaron Alexander was born in Atlanta, the son of Julius Mortimer Alexander and Rebecca Ella Solomons Alexander. His grandfather, Aaron Alexander, was the first Jew of American birth to settle in Atlanta. He received his law degree from the University of Virginia in 1895 and in 1914 was asked to help in the appeals process for Leo M. Frank. He was a founder of the Atlanta Historical Society, president of the United Hebrew School, treasurer of Jewish Welfare Fund and a member of the advisory board of the Union of Sephardic Congregations in New York. The collection consists of correspondence from family members relating to the lives of members of this prominent family in Savannah and Atlanta; genealogical material on the Alexander family, and court documents, letters, and newspaper articles relating to the Leo M. Frank case, 1913-1915. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
