BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Sara Lee Hogan (1906-1988) was the daughter of William J. and Josie Hogan and the granddaughter of William Hogan, founder of Hogansville. After graduating from Hogansville High School in 1923, Miss Hogan enrolled in Atlanta Normal School where she received an education degree in 1927. Miss Hogan taught in the Atlanta School System from 1925 to 1965, except for three years during World War II when she served overseas as a member of the American Red Cross. Miss Hogan moved back to Hogansville after retiring from the Atlanta School System and became an active member of the community. In 1970, she led the Hogansville Centennial Celebration. Miss Hogan continued to live in Hogansville until 1983 when she moved to Bartow, Florida. She died on December 5, 1988.
 

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

Miss Hogan maintained this scrapbook in a diary format. The volume contains souvenirs, correspondence, photographs, and other mementos related primarily to events in Miss Hogan's life during her last two years at Atlanta Normal School (1926-27). She kept ticket stubs from Georgia Tech football games and from performances of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. There are photographs of Camp Juliette Low, a training school for Girl Scout Officers in Cloudland, Georgia. The scrapbook contains correspondence and personal items Miss Hogan received from her friend Robert (Bob) Harris. Sketches and poetry by Miss Hogan, as well as pictures and articles cut out of magazines and newspapers that relate to particular events, are also included. (The scrapbook is in fragile condition; therefore, some loose materials were placed in folders.)
