The Great Arc Light Controversy of 1916

VHCA has received the following reports from the Atlanta Constitution about a great controversy raging over an arc light which was hung from the intersection of Highland Avenue and Adair Avenue. The McDaniels at 18 Adair (now 1015 Adair) and the Jones at 988 N. Highland (now 936 N. Highland), were at each other’s throats. Not to mention the Rev. J.C. Atkinson, who came to the defense of the honor of his daughter, Mrs. McDaniels!
