Contesting the
New South Order
Cliff Kuhn, recent past president of the Oral History Association, is associate professor of history at Georgia State University and director of the Georgia Government Documentation Project. A former associate director of the Southern Oral History Program, Kuhn in 1993 earned a Ph.D. in history at UNC-Chapel Hill, working with Jacquelyn Hall, Leon Fink, and others.

Kuhn's recent Contesting the New South Order: The 1914-1915 Strike at Altanta's Fulton Mills is a richly researched account of the American Federation of Labor's bold but ultimately failed effort to organize industrial workers in the New South.

Kuhn is also principal author of Living Atlanta: An Oral History of the City, 1914-1948 (Atlanta: Atlanta Historical Society and University of Georgia Press, 1990).
