Abstract:

The collection consists of one freestanding clock, the case for which was made by Robert W. John of Athens, Georgia, in late 1972. It is a long case clock, approximately 72 inches in height, which is a size frequently referred to as a "Grandmother Clock." The case is made of red gum wood that was harvested in the swamps of Mississippi and milled in Doraville, Georgia. The face and clock works were made in Germany and were obtained from an importer in Greensboro, North Carolina. The clock was purchased from the builder by Dorothy F. Johnston in February, 1973. Though the basic patterns and dimensions were taken from an early American clock located in Providence, Rhode Island, the clock is unique - there was never another made to duplicate it. The clock currently stands in the Hargrett Library at the University of Georgia. Also included in the collection is a set of instructions on the care and regulation of the clock, which the builder expected to run for a lifetime provided it was properly set up and regulated.
