Harold Harber Martin, journalist and author, was born September 17, 1910, in Commerce, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia in journalism (A.B. 1933), was a sports and features writer for the Atlanta Georgian (1932-1939), columnist for the Atlanta Constitution (1939-1943; 1946-1974), and a contributor (1944-45; 1950), associate editor (1951-1953), contributing editor (1958-1963), and editor-at-large (1964-1969) with the Saturday Evening Post. He is the author of numerous articles and many books, including Ralph McGill, Reporter (1973), for which he won the Georgia Writers Club Author of the Year Award in 1973.
Scope and Content Note
The collection consists of the papers of Harold H. Martin from 1837-1977. The papers include correspondence, articles, photographs, clippings, notes, scrapbooks, sound recordings, drafts, manuscripts, a diary, and memorabilia. Martin's correspondence is personal or relates to his writing (1965-1969); other correspondence (1969-1971), sound recordings, notes, photographs, drafts, and reviews relate mainly to Martin's books Starlifter (1972), Three Strong Pillars, Story of the Trust Company of Georgia (1974), Ralph McGill, Reporter (1973), William Berry Hartsfield (1978), and Georgia, A Bicentennial History (1977), as well as to unpublished biographies of Robert W. Woodruff and Charles Palmer. Articles were written by Martin for the Saturday Evening Post.
The collection also includes the correspondence of the Martin family, of Martin's wife, Boyce Lokey Martin, and of the Hamilton and Lokey families. Scrapbooks containing correspondence, photographs, and clippings were compiled by Boyce Martin's aunts, Marian Hamilton and Nancy H. Ogden, and document their service with the American Red Cross Mission to Palestine (1918-1919). The collection includes letters, lectures, speeches and notes from the diary kept by Nancy Hamilton Ogden documenting her service with the American Red Cross at Canton Christian College. This material reveals her observations on the political, economic and social life of China, principally in Canton (1925-1927). The fullest comments come from her diary entries, in which she discusses Cantonese monetary policies, local political struggles between the College and the Chinese community, and student strikes. She also comments at length on civil war in China (especially between the Cantonese and the Yunnanese), the exploits of Chaing Kai-shek and Chang T'so-lin, the suppression of communists, military dangers in Hong Kong, and anti-foreign feeling towards English and American citizens. Aside from political topics, Mrs. Ogden also details numerous social customs, including Chinese legends, a Chinese wedding, kite flying, the Chinese theater, dining customs, and celebrations of various festivals. She also describes the silk worm industry, refers to Japanese mill workers and offers a vivid account of her visit to the monastery at Fei Loi. Additional materials include a small group of letters written by Mrs. Ogden to her husband when she visited the Philippine Islands in 1925; scripts for slide shows that she prepared entitled "Things Chinese," which depict street scenes chiefly in Shanghai and Hong Kong (photographs missing); and a group of transcriptions comprising English translations of Chinese poetry prepared by Professor Herbert A. Giles of Cambridge University.
Also included are the following manuscripts: Georgia, A Bicentennial History (New York: Norton, 1977); history of Starlifter (transport planes) published as Starlifter: The C-141, Lockheed's High-Speed Flying Truck (Brattleboro, VT: S.
