Biographical/Historical Note

Founded in early 1900s, the Atlanta Symposium is a local men’s philosophical and social organization, consisting of fifteen active and two emeritus members. At monthly meetings and dinners, members present essays covering on a broad range of subjects, including local and world history, science and technology, comparative religion, and philosophy. Membership is by invitation only.


Scope and Content Note

The activities of the Atlanta Symposium, from 1907-2007, are recorded through organization records and member files. By-laws, correspondence, meeting notices, membership rosters, memorandum, minutes, notebook folders provide information about the purpose and structure of the organization, as well as how it changed over time. The folder labeled “History of Organization,” provides a sketch of the Atlanta Symposium’s past and a list of essay topics. Member files, the bulk of the collection, contain not only essays but also other documents – curriculum vitae, member data sheets, and resumes – containing biographic and professional information for members, both past and present.
