Administrative/Biographical History

Harvey T. Phillips (1824-1899) was born in New York state and moved with his family to Chattanooga, Tennessee, when a young man. He attended Dartmouth College and served as a tutor on the Dr. W. S. Stratham plantation in Grenada, Mississippi; the plantation consisted of 1300 acres and sixty slaves. In 1865 Phillips moved to Atlanta where he edited a religious newspaper and joined Benjamin B. Crew in founding a book and music store (1866) later known as Phillips & Crew Piano Co. In 1868 Phillips & Crew undertook publishing an existing magazine, Scott's Monthly Magazine, edited by Reverend W. J. Scott, and for which Phillips served as the assistant editor.
