Edward J. Cashin was one of the preeminent historians of colonial and Revolutionary-era Georgia. His academic career was unique in that he spent the vast majority of it in his hometown of Augusta and made that city a focal point for much of his prolific scholarship. Cashin served on the faculty of Augusta State University (ASU) from 1969 (when it was Augusta College) until his retirement in 1996. He then founded the Center for the Study of Georgia History on the ASU campus and served as its director for more than a decade. New Georgia Encyclopedia.
