Biographical/Historical Note

Beverly Means DuBose (1886-1953) was the son of Robert Marion (1841-1907) and Elizabeth (Egleston) DuBose (1849-1918). Beverly was born in Sewanee, Tennessee, and attended the University of the South in Sewanee. He came to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1906 to work in the insurance industry with his cousin, Thomas Egleston. DuBose married Lula Dean Jones (1842-1961) in 1915 and the couple had two children: Beverly Means, Jr. (1918-1986) and Elizabeth (DuBose) Skiles (1922-2000). DuBose worked for the insurance firm Perdue-Egleston from 1906 to 1923. He later became a partner in the firm DuBose-Egleston. He served on the board of the Atlanta Stove Works, was a trustee of the Egleston Hospital for Children and the Girl Scouts of America, and a member of the Civitan Club and Piedmont Driving Club. He was president of the Atlanta Historical Society (1948-1952); vice president of the Atlanta Art Association; and a trustee of both the High Museum and the Atlanta Music Club. DuBose collected books, manuscripts, and pictures related to the Civil War. Beverly Means DuBose, Jr. (1917-1986) married Frances Henley Woodruff (b. 1919), and they had two children: Beverly Means DuBose, III (b. 1940) and Dean Woodruff (DuBose) Smith (b. 1947). DuBose, Jr. graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1939 and went to work at Perdue-Egleston; the firm's name soon changed to DuBose-Egleston. He served as an officer in the U. S. Navy (1943-1946) and was stationed on the aircraft carrier U. S. S. Franklin D. Roosevelt. Later, he returned to Atlanta and worked as an executive with Johnson and Higgins Insurance Company, the largest privately owned insurance firm in the nation. He was tasked with opening the South and maintained the only office the firm had south of Philadelphia. Johnson and Higgins purchased DuBose-Egleston from DuBose, Jr. in 1956. Upon his retirement in 1982, DuBose, Jr. had become a partner and had opened offices for the firm in Miami, Birmingham, Nashville, Charlotte, New Orleans, Dallas, and Houston. DuBose, Jr. was a charter member of the Civil War Rountable of Atlanta (1949) and later served as president (1951-1958). He was also a member of the Georgia Civil War Centennial Commission (1961-1965) and served as chairman (1963-1965). DuBose, Jr. was president of the Atlanta Historical Society on two occasions and was board chairman of the society for many years. He was a member of the Capital City Club and the Piedmont Driving Club. Beverly DuBose, III was involved in real estate development and construction in Atlanta and, with his father, assembled the largest private collection of Civil War military equipment. He is a graduate of Washington and Lee University, and served three years in the U. S. Navy. He served on the board of trustees for several institutions including Washington and Lee University; the Civil War Trust; the Gettysburg Foundation; and the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar. He has served on the board of trustees of the Atlanta Historical Society since 1989 and served two terms as its president (1996-2000). DuBose III is a member of the board of The Museum of the American Revolution and has received the John Macpherson Berrien Award for Life Time Achievements in History from the Georgia Historical Society. He is a member of the Society of the Cincinnati and the Company of Military Historians as well as the Piedmont Driving Club. Additional biographical information about the DuBose family has not been determined.
