This book is about Georgia newspapers, Georgia, and Georgians-and about how newspapers publishers, editors, writers, and readers in Georgia have changed since 1950. Ralph McGill and Eugene Patterson, the great Atlanta editors, are here, and so are Walter Garrett and Bo McLeod, editors and printers of small weeklies in South Georgia. Here are stories about Charlie Black of Columbus, one of the great reporters of the war in Vietnam; Milton Beckerman, who referred to black persons as “Mr.” and “Mrs.” in Georgia weeklies long before it was a common practice even in large dailies; and the short-lived Atlanta Times, which was financed by thousands of Georgia investors who wanted to launch a “conservative “ newspaper.
