The Life of John Fletcher Hanson, Father of Georgia Tech

 

John Fletcher Hanson founded Bibb Manufacturing, owned the Macon Telegraph, and is considered the father of Georgia Tech. He was a guiding force in the industrialization of the South, especially in manufacturing and transportation. This book chronicles the life of an influential and controversial Georgia industrialist whose impact on the state’s post–Civil War development has never been fully explored.
