Biographical/Historical Note

Luise Sims for a number of years headed and was actively involved with the book department of Davison-Paxon Company in Atlanta. She was a prime mover in the success of the Atlanta Book Fair in 1946 as well.

The Constitution continued as a morning paper with a liberal editorial bent, while the afternoon Journal had a more conservative leaning. On Sundays the papers combined efforts to produce the Sunday Journal-Constitution. George C. Biggers served as president of the combined newspapers until his death in 1957. -- "Atlanta Journal-Constitution." New Georgia Encyclopedia. (Retrieved March 26, 2009)
