About the Author

The images were collected from several sources including the Chattanooga–Hamilton County Bicentennial Library, Tennessee State Library and Archives, Albert Gore Research Center at Middle Tennessee State University, and personal collections of the author and her road-enthusiast friends. The author, Leslie N. Sharp, became enamored with the Dixie Highway while a graduate student in the early 1990s. Currently she is assistant dean of Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture, where she teaches historic preservation and continues to explore the impact of technology on people and places.
