Lucian Lamar Knight (Born in Atlanta in 1868) graduated from the University of Georgia in 1888. An accomplished attorney, newspaperman, and minister, Knight spent four years of his leisure time poring over court documents, old newspaper articles, and burial ground tombstones, all to accurately recount the history of his beloved home state. Originally published in 1913 and 1914, this work stands as an accurate historical reference of Georgia at that time. Knight died in 1933 at the age of sixty-five and is remembered in the American National Biography as a writer, poet, historian, speaker, and master of ceremonies.
