Play • 53 min

In this episode of Armchair Historians, Anne Marie talks to Kevin Kuharic about his recently published book, A Clutter of Patchwork Squares: A Chronicle of Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery.

For those of you who have been following us from the beginning, you may remember that my first episode was a three-part series in which Mr. Kuharic shared the history of famous hotelier and French chef of the Rockies, Louis Dupuy.

A Clutter of Patchwork Squares, which is rising quickly up the Amazon chart for 20th Century American History, is a groundbreaking historical account and reference. Kuharic has literally spent years researching and writing about one of the most popular and largest cemeteries in Atlanta Georgia, we are talking footnotes and everything.

Mr. Kuharic serves as executive director of Hotel de Paris Museum, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and member of Great American Treasures. He has appeared in documentaries, on public television series, and contributed to the books James Novelli: A Forgotten Sculptor, Building Metropolitan Atlanta: Past, Present & Future, Urban Green: Innovative Parks for Resurgent Cities, Atlanta's Oakland Cemetery: An Illustrated History and Guide, and Cultural Heritage Tourism: Five Steps for Success and Sustainability.  His historic preservation work at Oakland cemetery spanned three decades and was recognized by four mayors of the City of Atlanta.
