Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Daily morning newspaper published in Atlanta, Ga.

, based largely on the former Atlanta Constitution. Generally regarded as the "voice of the New South," the Constitution counted among the great newspapers of the U.S. It became a leader among Southern papers soon after its founding in 1868, and a succession of outstanding editors contributed to its distinction: Henry W. Grady (1850–89), in the late 1870s and 1880s; Clark Howell (1897–1938); and Ralph McGill, who served as both editor (1942–60) and publisher (1960–69). In 1950 it was bought by James M. Cox, who already owned the evening Atlanta Journal (founded 1883); for many years a merged paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, was published on weekends until the two papers were fully merged in 2001.
