Biographical/Historical Note

"Kenneth Coleman, professor of history at the University of Georgia, was the preeminent authority of his generation on colonial and revolutionary Georgia. He wrote what is probably the most widely read history of the state, Georgia History in Outline (1955), which has been revised many times and remains in print. As the recommended text for students preparing for the University System's Georgia history and government exam, it has proven to be the all-time best-seller of the University of Georgia Press." - "Kenneth Coleman." New Georgia Encyclopedia. (Retrieved July 31, 2008)
