Atlanta - newspaper clippings & notes, 1950-1959

 File — Box: 11, Folder: 2

Scope and Content

From the Collection: These papers consist primarily of newspaper clippings collected by Jennie Meta Barker about Atlanta and it's history. Most clippings relate broadly to Atlanta, but particular subjects include history, the arts, politics and government, business and organizations, notable Atlantans, and Georgia geography. In addition to clippings, there are also reports, pamphlets, publications, and correspondence relating to these topics. The collection also contains notes and chapters that Barker wrote for her unpublished history of Atlanta, as well as materials regarding her work in teaching and history. Many folders are labeled simply "Atlanta - news clippings," but may contain some hand written notes or other ephemera.
