Stone Mountain Confederate Monumental Association: Rogers Winter diary, 1925
BV 5

Scope and Content Note

The 1925 diary of Rogers Winter, SMCMA publicity director, gives a first-hand account of the events of that year. The diary documents the growing tension between Borglum and the Association, the sculptor's dismissal and destruction of models (February 25), the hiring of Lukeman (April) and his work for the Association during the summer of 1925. Indications throughout the diary reveal the preoccupation of the SMCMA with financial problems and the close personal ties among the members of the executive committee. The provenance of the diary prior to its ownership by Emory University is unknown.
