Description

A Year Book created to document the year's progress in the city of Augusta in 1938 and the work to be done in 1939. The book lists all of Augusta's mayors from 1798 to 1939. There are articles about the Works Progress Administration's help with development projects in Augusta, an article about the Augusta National Golf Club (Masters), a budgetary figures for the city's operations.

This book was placed in a time capsule by Louise de l'Aigle Seyd Reese around 1941. She had the time capsule buried in a wall of the Sexton's Lodge (of which she had funded the construction) at Magnolia Cemetery in Augusta, Ga. The time capsule was recovered by members of the DeLaigle (de l'Aigle) family in 2015 with permission from the Augusta-Richmond County Government.
