9780820331294: Placenames of Georgia

John Goff wrote for people of all reasonings―historians, linguists, anthropologists, geographers, cartographers, folklorists, and those ubiquitous intelligent readers. Comprising one of the most informative and appealing contributions to the study of toponymy, his short studies have never before been widely available. Placenames of Georgia brings together the sketches that appeared in the Georgia Mineral Newsletter and other longer articles so that all interested in Georgia and the Southeast can share Professor Goff's intimate knowledge of the history and geography of his state and region, his linguistic rigor, and his appreciation of the folklore surrounding many of Georgia's names.

About the Author:

John H. Goff, an economist specializing in transportation, spent most of his adult life in and around Georgia, serving among other duties, as an economist for the Tennessee Valley Authority and as a professor at Auburn University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Emory University. The late Francis Lee Utley was professor of English at Ohio State University, where he taught for thirty-nine years. A man of myriad interests, Professor Utley wrote with equal ease in literature, linguistics, and folklore. His publications span the centuries from Noah's ark to William Faulkner. An archivist in the Georgia Surveyor General Department and an associate of the late Mr. Goff, Marion Hemperley has published a number of articles in the "Georgia Historical Quarterly," "South Carolina Historical Magazine," and "Alabama Historical Quarterly."

Review:

Anyone who reads [these essays on Georgia placenames] will not only be entertained and informed about a large number of individual names, but will also get an excellent general idea of how placenames originate and are modified in the course of their largely oral transmission.
