More About Memories of the Mansion by Sandra D. Deal; Jennifer W. Dickey; Catherine M. Lewis
 
 
 
Overview

Designed by Atlanta architect A. Thomas Bradbury and opened in 1968, the mansion has been home to eight first families and houses a distinguished collection of American art and antiques. Often called the people s house, the mansion is always on display, always serving the public. "Memories of the Mansion" tells the story of the Georgia Governor s Mansion what preceded it and how it came to be as well as the stories of the people who have lived and worked here since its opening in 1968.

The authors worked closely with the former first families (Maddox, Carter, Busbee, Harris, Miller, Barnes, Perdue, and Deal) to capture behind-the-scenes anecdotes of what life was like in the state s most public house. This richly illustrated book not only documents this extraordinary place and the people who have lived and worked here, but it will also help ensure the preservation of this historic resource so that it may continue to serve the state and its people."
