The History of Souther Field

Looking at Souther Field today one could hardly guess the amount of work and study that has gone into the making of it. It is due to the efficient work of the men in charge of construction that it was so quickly and efficiently done.

The contract for the construction of Souther Field was let on February 7, 1918 and work was begun on February 19th. The contract was let on the basis of cost plus 10 percent to J. B. McCrary Co of Atlanta, GA and the Hardaway Construction Co. of Columbus, GA.
