This digital project is part of an ongoing research project that started with undergraduate students in my United States Environmental History course at Georgia State University. The project traces the complex history of Proctor Creek, a watershed in west Atlanta that has been the site of some of the city's most severe environmental problems, reaching back to the nineteenth century. This collaborative project will provide the first environmental history of Proctor Creek and the neighborhoods surrounding it. Using a variety of published and archival records and oral histories, students will tell the stories of residents and shed light on the environmental justice issues surrounding the management of Proctor Creek for more than a century. When complete, this project will be accessible by the general public, and it can provide important context and information for residents, environmental advocacy groups, businesses, and policy makers as they work to solve the severe environmental problems still faced by residents.
