One Response to Author Series: The Art and Life of Atlanta Artist Wilbur G. Kurtz

  1. This is very interesting and I hope to be able to make it. I’m on the board of Historic Sylvester Cemetery, where the 19th Century mill owner Thomas Terry is buried. Kurtz wrote an account of Terry’s 1862 murder in a local history publication. It’s one of the best sources of information on that incident.
