As I was perusing old issues of the Citizens Journal I found this gem in the December 31, 1929 issue. The Dr. R.L. McClung family came to Atlanta in the 1870’s so that he could open his physician’s office. He and his relatives owned many businesses over the years, including a cotton gin, a saloon and a mercantile. In the Journal’s issues of the 1930’s, Catherine Louise McClung often graced the Society News page.
