Collection Description

Historical Note

Thomas Goree Little (1911-1962) was an architect from Atlanta, Georgia. He received a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from Georgia Tech in 1935, and worked in New York City and Colonial Williamsburg before coming back to Atlanta and starting his own practice specializing in designing houses and furniture in the Colonial style, and historic restoration. He and his wife Charlotte, who designed interiors for his houses, worked extensively with the Georgia Historical Commission on sites throughout the state. Mr. and Mrs. Little were amoung many members of the Atlanta Art Association killed in the Orly Field plane crash in Paris, France in June 1962.
