Vida Goldgar has been an important contributor to the "Southern Israelite" for almost forty years. She moved to Atlanta from New York with her husband and four small children in 1959. After moving to Atlanta, she quickly became involved in the Jewish community and joined the staff of the "Southern Israelite" in 1964. Over the next forty years, she filled many positions from columnist to managing editor. On January 1, 1979, she purchased the paper and became editor and publisher. She owned the "Southern Israelite" until August, 1986 when she sold it again. After selling the paper, she continued to serve as a senior editor and columnist until her retirement in 1994. Today she continues as a regular columnist for the "Atlanta Jewish Times," formerly the "Southern Israelite." The collection consists primarily of Goldgar's columns and news articles which she wrote for "The Southern Israelite" as well as speeches she gave to various organizations. Of special interest are pamphlets from a variety of synagogues in Georgia and a draft of a history documenting the settlement of Jews in Georgia. Arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically within each folder.
