About this title


William B. Hartsfield was Atlanta's longest serving mayor, serving six terms. By many aviation experts, he was considered the "Father of Aviation" in Atlanta. This is a story about the airport's history and it's names. Maynard Jackson was Atlanta's first African-American mayor, serving three terms. From it's humble beginnings to present day, explore how a run down racetrack became the world's busiest airport. It is a fascinating, fun read, not a boring history. I trust you will enjoy "What's In A Name?"

About the Author:

Dale Hartsfield is an Atlanta area native and a distant relative of former Mayor William Berry Hartsfield. Since childhood, the airport has been a part of his life. Dale's father worked for Delta at the airport. In 1971, at age thirteen, he began introducing himself as "Dale Hartsfield, Hartsfield like the airport!" In 2003, Dale was the family spoke person for the Hartsfield family during the airport name change. Since then, it has been his dream to expound on the name changes at the Atlanta airport. He is available to share his story in public speaking engagements. He can be contacted at:
