The sunny South. March 6, 1875
In November of 1874, J.H. and W.B Seals established the Sunny South in Atlanta as a literary magazine. The paper printed stories of prominent southern authors and covered the news of the state. In 1893, the Atlanta Constitution purchased the magazine and published it as supplement to the Sunday editions of the Atlanta Constitution. The Sunny South, during this period, was the first publication in Atlanta to support the cause of suffrage for women. Celebrated writer and journalist Joel Chandler Harris absorbed the Sunny South into his new publication, the Uncle Remus Magazine in 1907. He died the following year, but his paper continued circulation under the direction of his son until 1913.
