The city of Atlanta experienced rapid growth during the second half of the 20th century. “Changing Atlanta 1950-1999: The Challenges of a Growing Southern Metropolis” illustrates how city leaders and citizens met those challenges. The exhibition highlights four collections from the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library: the Randolph Thrower papers, the Druid Hills Civic Association records, the Community Council of the Atlanta Area records, and the John Sibley papers. Some of the featured photographs are from the Atlanta Daily World and Ron Sherman photograph collections.
