100th anniversary of lynching of Leo Frank

Postby Stephen Fox » Fri Aug 07, 2015 3:27 pm

On occasion William and I have bantered about the legacy of Baptist preacher's son Marshall Frady. Frady's review of Oney's book on Frank was the last one he did for NY Rev of Books.

I read Oney's book about 15 years ago, all 750 pages, and sat in lecture and talked to Oney at Furman about 7 years ago.

Klan was revised in 1915 when they lit up Stone Mountain in the wake of this lynching.

Read the book. Been by the site. Sad chapter in GA history.

wish there was a way we could meet Thursday in Marietta for the presentation. I contacted Lamar to see if I could catch a ride from Rockmart but he had entanglements.

If Haruo is unfamiliar with Marshall Frady here is an aside

For both on another note hope to see the gggg granddaughter of Jonathan Edward's predecessor, Stoddard, in a few weeks at the Sacred Harp singing on Lookout mtn

Only 4 extra ggggs? Long lapses between generations. I only say that b/c I am the ggggggg nephew of Danl Boone, whose brother who begat me was surely younger, probably by a generation or two, than Stoddard. How old is she?
