Collection Description

Biographical Note

Asa Griggs Candler (1851-1929), businessman, philanthropist, mayor of Atlanta, Georgia, and founder of the Coca-Cola Company, was born December 30, 1851, near Villa Rica, Carroll County, Georgia. Candler married Lucy Elizabeth Howard (1859-1919) in 1878. They had five children: Charles Howard Candler (1878-1957), Asa Griggs Candler, Jr. (1880-1953), Lucy Beall Candler Owens Heinz Leide (1883-1962), Walter Turner Candler (1885-1967), and William Candler (1890-1936). After Lucy's death in 1919, Candler married Mary Reagan Little in 1923. As an Atlanta druggist (1873-1890), Candler became the sole owner and manufacturer of the Coca-Cola elixir. After selling that company to Robert W. Woodruff and other Atlanta businessmen in 1919, he invested in real estate and opened banks in Atlanta and elsewhere. He also founded Atlanta's Chamber of Commerce, and served as mayor of Atlanta (1916-1919). Candler helped organize and fund activities of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, including Wesley Memorial Enterprises, Emory College, and Emory University, serving as president of the Board of Trustees of the college (1906-1919) and of the university (1915-1929). Candler died in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 12, 1929.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of the papers of Asa Griggs Candler from 1821-1980. The papers contain personal correspondence; speeches; material related to Candler's personal, civic, and religious activities; correspondence and other material concerning Emory University; business papers, mainly relating to Candler's real estate dealings in the United States and Canada; clippings; photographs; and memorabilia. The correspondence, arranged chronologically, concerns Emory College, Emory University, business matters including the Coca-Cola Company, and family life. Correspondents include Charles Howard Candler, Lucy Elizabeth Howard Candler, Warren Akin Candler, Charles Edward Dowman, Andrew Jackson Lamar, Gordon Lee, George Samuel Sexton, George Gilman Smith, and Harry Harlan Stone. Other papers that are concerned with Candler's personal life and with his family include miscellaneous family documents and various material about his civic, political, charitable, and church-related activities. Contained here are deeds and documents of Candler's ancestors; biographical sketches of his life; items from his 1916 mayoral campaign; and material concerning civic organizations, church work, and the YMCA.

Asa Griggs Candler's personality is further revealed in the many speeches he made (Box 2). He spoke to many different groups on many different occasions, yet his speeches sounded similar themes, and often contained identical words and phrases. Recurring themes included patriotism, reverence for democracy, pride in the rebuilding South, praise for the church, faith in God, respect for education and hard work, emphasis on moral goodness, and faith in American business ingenuity and free enterprise. These speeches are filled with personal anecdotes and historical examples.

Emory University was one of Asa Candler's main interests throughout his life. He sent his sons to Emory College, served as a trustee for nearly thirty years, and made many generous gifts to the college and the university. This collection contains approximately 180 letters, mostly concerned with financial matters, exchanged between 1900 and 1911 by Candler and various Emory officials including James Edward Dickey (bp., 1864-1928), college president, and Harry Harlan Stone (1861-1932), college treasurer (Box 4). Other Emory material includes financial documents; papers relating to those parts of Wesley Memorial Enterprises that became affiliated with Emory University; items concerning the Asa Griggs Candler Library; reprints of the "Million Dollar Letter;" the 1930 Emory Campus yearbook dedicated to the memory of Asa Griggs Candler; and material relating to the 1951 celebration of the centennial of Asa Candler's birth (Boxes 4).

The collection contains miscellaneous papers relating to some of Asa Candler's many business interests including Asa G. Candler and Co.; Central Bank and Trust Corporation; Atlanta Warehouse Company; and the Coca-Cola Company (Box 5, BV1).

Asa Candler became progressively more interested in real estate dealings. His early ventures centered around the Druid Hills corporation which was chartered in 1908. Much of the Druid Hills land came from the property of the Kirkwood Land Company, and some of the original Kirkwood Land Company papers are preserved in the collection (Box 5) as are the minute book, organization papers, and charter of the Druid Hills Corporation (Box 6). Land transactions for the land lots in Druid Hills along with papers such as abstracts of title and wills are included (Boxes 6). The collection also contains documents concerning road building, utilities, and corporation finances (Boxes 6 and 7) as well as some original plans, maps, and land plots for the Druid Hills Subdivision. Some of these plans are unlabeled blueprints; others are of Kirkwood Land Company and Druid Hills property designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) and the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architects of Brookline, MA. (OP1)

There are four other boxes of business papers concerned with Atlanta: Miscellaneous real estate papers (Boxes 9 and 11); those concerned with the Ansley Hotel (Box 10); and those concerned with the Point Peachtree Company and the Forsyth Building and (Box 11 and 12).

Business papers from places other than Atlanta include those related to dealings in Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Washington (Box 12), and New York (Box 13), and papers related to the business of Asa G. Candler, Ltd., in Montreal and Toronto, Canada (Box 13).

Box 14 contains most of the clippings found in the collection. Included are clippings about Candler and his family, Emory University, the Coca-Cola Company, the Atlanta Warehouse Company, various other business interests, and civic and political activities. There are also two folders of clippings apparently collected by Asa Candler himself; these clippings are not directly related to him, but interested him in some way.

The final portion of the collection consists of family photographs (Box 15), miscellaneous items concerned with business and civic activities, family memorabilia, clippings about the many Candler family homes (Box 14), several large certificates entitling Asa Candler to membership in the Chamber of Commerce, the Governor's House Guard, and other similar organizations (OP2), and a various personal items belonging to Asa Candler (Boxes 16 and 17).
