About this product
- DescriptionThis work comprises one of the most informative and appealing contributions to the study of toponymy. Goff displays his intimate knowledge of the history and geography of his state and region, his linguistic rigor, and his appreciation of the folklore surrounding many of Georgia's names.
- Author BiographyJohn H. Goff, an economist specializing in transportation, spent most of his adult life in and around Georgia, serving among other duties, as an economist for the Tennessee Valley Authority and as a professor at Auburn University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Emory University. The late Francis Lee Utley was professor of English at Ohio State University, where he taught for thirty-nine years. A man of myriad interests, Professor Utley wrote with equal ease in literature, linguistics, and folklore. His publications span the centuries from Noah's ark to William Faulkner. An archivist in the Georgia Surveyor General Department and an associate of the late Mr. Goff, Marion Hemperley has published a number of articles in the Georgia Historical Quarterly, South Carolina Historical Magazine, and Alabama Historical Quarterly.
