Ann Taylor Boutwell, a remembrance

One of my favorite local historians died in August. I first noticed Ann when the Intown Paper still was going by zip-code editions and I think I saw her first in 30308. Each month, she would do a run down of things that had happened that month throughout Atlanta’s history. She always dug up new things to share every year. I found out about all kinds of nooks and crannies from her writing.

Here’s a nice piece by the editor of the current version of Intown Paper

I don’t see a canonical way to find all of her articles on their site, hopefully they are not all “gone with the wind”. They would make a terrific source for a day-by-day desk calendar!

I took the liberty of copying a picture from there in case it disappears sometime
