Franklin Garrett

Franklin Miller Garrett, Atlanta’s only, ever official historian, was born in 1906 and moved to Atlanta in 1914. You can’t “do” Atlanta history without running across Garrett’s name and volume of work. I own almost all the books he has written, and the more I began learning about him and his life, I realized a similarity we shared - being an "enthusiast". Franklin Garrett didn’t have a history degree, but he came to Atlanta and let his curiosity lead the way - a way that brought over eight decades of research, published work, history groups that still exist today and so much more.
