C. A. Scott

Cornelius Adolphus (C. A.) Scott served as editor of the Atlanta Daily World from 1934 until his retirement in 1997. Although more conservative than many black editors of his time, Scott spoke out about Georgia's white primary system and advocated school integration and black suffrage in the pages of the newspaper.
