Squires & Stags to feature Atlanta History Center September 7
By Bennett Whipple
Squires & Stags is bringing The Atlanta History Center to Big Canoe in the person of Paul Carriere, executive vice president of the renowned cultural museum and the new home of the Atlanta Cyclorama.
The center is a collection of historical exhibits including the story of Bobby Jones and his grand slam, the American Civil War, the story of barbeque, the origin of Indians in Georgia among others.
The Swan Coach House and the Margaret Mitchell home are among the Center’s off-campus exhibits. His talk will include an update on the soon-to-open Cylorama.
Carriere will bring a Power Point presentation to illustrate his talk: “Inside and outside of our buildings, we reveal the magic, meaning and context that give rise to a multidimensional, shared understanding of our city.”
A graduate of Tulane Law School and a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Texas, Carriere was associated with the law firm of Troutman Sanders and earlier served as a law clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth District.
Prior to the history center, he served nine years as chief counsel and senior vice president for operations at the American Cancer Society.
Squires & Stags meets on Friday, Sept. 7, in the Mountains Grille at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Coffee is ready at 7:45 a.m. followed by a buffet breakfast served at 8 a.m. The price of breakfast is $13 payable on your POA account or by cash at the door.
