Georgia’s First Lady, Sandra Deal, will be joined by her co-authors Oct. 28 on a visit to the University of Georgia Libraries to discuss “Memories of the Mansion: The Story of Georgia’s Governor’s Mansion,” published by the UGA Press.
The book talk will be held at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries beginning at 10 a.m. A reception will follow.
“All homes have a story to tell, and the Georgia Governor’s Mansion is no exception,” Deal said.
Deal wrote the book with Kennesaw State University history professors Jennifer W. Dickey and Catherine M. Lewis to chronicle the history of the Georgia Governor’s Mansion, which opened in 1968 and includes a distinguished collection of American art and antiques. The book contains personal anecdotes and more than200 color photos from the collections of former first families of Georgia.
Former first families Maddox, Carter, Busbee, Harris, Miller, Barnes and Perdue, shared stories and photographs about what it was like living in the “people’s house.” The foreword by Betty Foy Sanders details the complicated process of planning the new mansion.
Atlanta architect A. Thomas Bradbury’s neoclassical design features a 30-column colonnade to evoke southern charm and grandeur while accommodating state functions and family living quarters. The mansion opened in 1968.
“The mansion has one of the most valuable collections of early federal era art and antiques in the world, and its origin is now recorded for posterity.” said UGA Press Director Lisa Bayer. “As a unit of Georgia’s flagship university, the UGA Press is honored to have published this rich, meticulously documented, utterly engaging story of our state’s current history through its first families.”

Manuscripts, engravings and maps from the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, as well as specimens from the Georgia Museum of Natural History are among the items available for examination in an exhibit now open at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. The exhibit is a companion to a series of events commemorating the 250th anniversary of the natural history expedition of John and William Bartram.
Original landscapes by Athens artist Philip Juras are focal points of the exhibit. Juras depicts the southern wilderness as William Bartram described it. His award-winning book, The Southern Frontier: Landscapes Inspired by Bartram’s Travels” is available from the University of Georgia Press.
Diary excerpts, illustrations and rare natural history books from the Hargrett collections are enhanced with specimens loaned from the GMNH, including flora and fauna, indigo, silk worm cocoons and remnants of the giant oyster shells once found on Georgia’s coast.
The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 24.

English professor Barbara McCaskill will speak on “The Rise and Fall of William and Ellen Craft, Fugitives from Slavery in Georgia,” based on her recent book from UGA Press, “Love, Liberation, and Escaping Slavery William and Ellen Craft in Cultural Memory” May 18 at 3 p.m. in room 285 of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
A reception will f0llow. The event is open free to the public.
The spectacular 1848 escape of William and Ellen Craft (1824–1900; 1826–1891) from slavery in Macon, Georgia, is a dramatic story in the annals of American history. Ellen, who could pass for white, disguised herself as a gentleman slaveholder; William accompanied her as his “master’s” devoted slave valet; both traveled openly by train, steamship, and carriage to arrive in free Philadelphia on Christmas Day. In Love, Liberation, and Escaping Slavery, Barbara McCaskill revisits this dual escape and examines the collaborations and partnerships that characterized the Crafts’ activism for the next thirty years: in Boston, where they were on the run again after the passage of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law; in England; and in Reconstruction-era Georgia. McCaskill also provides a close reading of the Crafts’ only book, their memoir, Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom, published in 1860.
Yet as this study of key moments in the Crafts’ public lives argues, the early print archive—newspapers, periodicals, pamphlets, legal documents—fills gaps in their story by providing insight into how they navigated the challenges of freedom as reformers and educators, and it discloses the transatlantic British and American audiences’ changing reactions to them. By discussing such events as the 1878 court case that placed William’s character and reputation on trial, this book also invites readers to reconsider the Crafts’ triumphal story as one that is messy, unresolved, and bittersweet. An important episode in African American literature, history, and culture, this will be essential reading for teachers and students of the slave narrative genre and the transatlantic antislavery movement and for researchers investigating early American print culture.
