Current Research

For several decades the Bon Air in Augusta was among the most popular winter resort hotels in the South. (Postcard from personal collection)


I am currently working on four new publications. My next book project examines Georgia’s Fall Line cities of Augusta, Macon, and Columbus from Reconstruction to the present. I am at work on an initial article associated with this project, which will focus on the development of Augusta, Georgia, as a major winter resort between the 1870s and the 1930s. In addition, I am completing an essay titled “Urban Tourism in the U.S. since 1800” for the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of American History and have a book chapter (“Jewish Suburbanization and Jewish Presence in ‘The City without Jews”) that is currently under peer review for an anthology titled The Jews of Cleveland.
