Hugh and Reece are the sons of Hugh L. Grogan. The photo was taken shortly after the deed of gift was signed for the Archives to receive the papers of Hugh L. Grogan. Grogan was a noted community activist and the first African American elected official in the history of Cobb County. He represented Ward 5 on the Marietta City Council from 1978-1982.
Dr. Scott is responsible for the Kennesaw State University Oral History Project, which includes the Cobb NAACP/Civil Rights Series.
The event was held in the Athenaeum Gallery space of the Archives to celebrate the completion of the Cobb NAACP/Civil Rights Series of oral histories. Students in Dr. Tom Scott's class interviewed members of the Cobb County Branch of the NAACP, as well as members of the community engaged in the Civil Rights Movement.
Digital versions of all transcripts in the Cobb NAACP/Civil Rights Series are available in PDF format through the Archives content management system: archon.kennesaw.edu/.
