The Culture of Property: Race, Class, and Housing Landscapes in Atlanta, 1880-1950

By Leeann Lands | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I have many people to thank for their time, support, advice, and knowledge. At Georgia Tech, Ronald Bayor, Douglas Flamming, Larry Keating, Robert McMath, and Steven Usselman provided important feedback on how to think about class and racial segregation historically. All gave generously of their time. Anonymous reviewers for Journal of Urban History, Journal of Planning History, and Journal of Social History helped me hone some of my first ideas about segregation in Atlanta, and I am grateful for their comments. The reviewers for the University of Georgia Press prompted me to think harder (and write more carefully) about some of the phenomena I discuss in the book. I appreciate the substantial time and effort they put toward this manuscript.

It was my earlier MA work with Ray Mohl and Mark Rose that attracted me to urban history. Ray and Mark have continued to encourage my scholarly and professional development. They and the other members of the Urban History Association have created a supportive environment for young scholars, for which I am thankful.

At Kennesaw State University, Sarah Robbins, Ulf Zimmerman, and Tim Hedeen commented on various essays, chapters, and proposals related to this project. Nancy Hill, Gayle Wheeler, Rhonda Nemeth, Janet Medearis, Janie Mardis, Caitlin McCannon, and Jessica Killcreas all contributed to this work in various ways over the last eight years. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the dean of the Graduate College, and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Kennesaw State University financially supported portions of the work investigating the intersection of homeownership and housing landscapes. Finally, my department chair, Howard Shealy, ensured that I had time and money to pursue this and many other projects.

The book relied heavily on the services of libraries and archives. I am particularly grateful to the Interlibrary Loan and other library staff at Kennesaw State University.

At the Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center, Michael Brubaker, Helen Matthews, and several other staff members provided immeasurable assistance. Mary Daniels at the Frances Loeb Library at Harvard University helped dredge up the Robert Whitten materials on Atlanta. I am also grateful to the librarians and archivists at Archives and Special Collections,
