Joseph Kohn Heyman (1908-2001) was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1908, the son of Minna Simon Heyman and Arthur Heyman. He attended Fulton High School and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Georgia in 1928. In 1930, he received his Masters of Business Administration from the Harvard Business School. From 1930 until 1942 he served on the staff of Tri-Continental Corporation, a New York investment company, initially as an investment analyst and later as economist. He returned to Atlanta in 1942 to serve with the War Production Board. From 1945 to 1951, Heyman operated his own investment firm, joining the Trust Company of Georgia as a vice-president in 1951. Throughout his career, Heyman was often called upon to comment in print and in speeches to local organizations on the state of the economy. Notwithstanding two years where he served as Financial Vice-President of Rich’s Inc., he remained at the Trust Company of Georgia until his retirement in 1973. Heyman served as a member of the Board of Directors of Rich’s Inc., and was active in a variety of civic organizations including the Atlanta Parking Commission, Community Chest, Family Service Society, Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Atlanta-Fulton County Joint City-County Advisory Commission, Atlanta Arts Alliance, Inc., and the Atlanta Economics Club. He was also a member of The Temple and the Standard Club. The Joseph K. Heyman Family Papers, 1895-1997, consist of publicity files and speeches given by Joseph Heyman on the state of the economy to organizations throughout Georgia, publicity files relating to his speaking commitments, records from boards and organization on which he served, correspondence and newspaper articles. Also contained in the collection are records from The Coca Cola Company, and a biography of Herman Heyman (1825-1885) a German immigrant who settled in West Point, Georgia, written by his daughter Bertha Heyman. The biography also describes the military record of Louis Merz, also from West Point, who was killed while serving the Confederacy. The collection is arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
