Katherine Geffcken was born in "the old Piedmont Hospital" in 1927 and lived on Myrtle and West Peachtree Streets, worshipped at All Saints Episcopal and attended Spring Street School, O'Keefe and Girl's High. She then went on to Agnes Scott, graduating in 1949, graduate school at Bryn Mawr and 30 years as a professor at Wellesley College.
Hearing her stories of "old" Atlanta, riding the streetcar, the Great Depression, WWII, downtown Decatur and generally being a woman doing incredible things, in a time when few women did, brought so much richness to my existing knowledge of Atlanta history and I hope it does the same for listeners!
