Title:Harvey Newman Papers

Dr. Harvey K. Newman, professor emeritus and longtime leader in Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, dedicated much of his career to studying and teaching about Atlanta. An expert in urban policy studies, Newman has contributed to various civic organizations and city initiatives, including the City of Atlanta's Urban Design Commission, Congressman John Lewis's Fifth Congressional District Multi-Cultural Initiatives Task Force, and the Coalition to Remember the 1906 Race Riot. Newman also served as a faculty member on the Policy Institute for Civic Leadership and directed the Andrew Young Legacy Project, which produced a book and film (Andrew Young and the Making of Modern Atlanta) about the role of Ambassador Andrew Young in the city's development.

The Harvey Newman papers document Newman's teaching, research, and civic engagement. Much of the collection relates to two Atlanta-focused research projects, City of Atlanta Case Studies and Making of Modern Atlanta (the Andrew Young Legacy Project), for which Newman and others conducted interviews with prominent figures in government and politics, civic affairs, and civil rights.
