Collection Description

Historical Note

Annie Beth Mobley Abney (1928-2016) graduated from the University of Georgia with an A.B.J. in journalism in 1956 and a masters' degree in history in 1957. She married George Morris Abney, a University of Georgia professor, in 1959. Mrs. Abney was a writer of note whose articles appeared in a number of state and national magazines. She was once president of the Athens Historical Quarterly. Abney was active for many years in the civic, religious, and cultural life of Athens, Georgia, and, as a result, she was named Woman of the Year for Volunteer Public Service by the Athens Business and Professional Women's Club in 1977.
