Abstract:

"Today, people remember Asa Candler for his part in founding The Coca-Cola Company and beginning that product's phenomenal success, but he also was successful in real estate development and in banking. His interests made him one of the richest men in the early twentieth-century South." "His sense of duty led to his support of many undertakings of the Southern Methodist Church. Advised by his brother Warren, a bishop in that denomination, Asa wrote a million-dollar check to finance the establishment of Emory University in Atlanta, where young men would be prepared for the ministry. Throughout his life, Candler made gifts and loans to encourage the well-being of his denomination, his city, and his state. At the end of his life, he had given away his entire fortune.".

"By following Asa Candler's life, readers have a unique opportunity to visit Atlanta during one of the most critical times in its development, and to see it through the eyes of one of Atlanta's "movers and shakers.""--BOOK JACKET.
