Historical Note

The Whitehead Realty Company was incorporated in 1919. Lettie Pate Evans, Conkey Pate Whitehead, and Joseph B. Whitehead were the only shareholders in the company. The company bought and sold parcels of land in central business district of Atlanta and surrounding areas. In addition, the Whitehead Reality Company collected monthly rental fees for spaces in buildings it owned. For example, the company owned the Norris Building, which was located on Peachtree Street between Cain Street (Andrew Young International Boulevard) and Harris Street. The company changed the name of the building to the Whitehead Building in 1944. The company was liquidated in 1972, and its assets were transferred to the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, and the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, Inc., and the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation, Inc.

This subseries consists of the records of the Whitehead Realty Company from 1881 to 1982.
