Biographical/Historical Note

Randolph "Randy" Whitfield was born in Tallahassee, Florida, on February 9, 1909, to Justice James Bryan Whitfield (1860-1948) and Margaret Hayward Randolph Whitfield (1873-1966). His father was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Florida from 1904 to 1943. Both sides of Whitfield's family were well-known southern families. Famous ancestors include his maternal great-great grandfather, Alonzo Church, the sixth president of the University of Georgia. According to the Georgia Tech History Digital Portal, Whitfield kept this fact a "dark family secret" during his time at Tech.

Whitfield enrolled at the Georgia School (now Institute) of Technology in 1927. An incredibly active student, he was involved in many clubs and organizations during his time at Georgia Tech. While studying for a co-operative degree in Mechanical Engineering, Whitfield was president of the Omicron Delta Kappa honor society, Tech Cotillion Club, Pi Delta Epsilon honorary journalism fraternity, Co-op Club, and his senior class. He also became a member of the Delta Tau Delta social fraternity, Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, ANAK Society, Phi Kappa Phi honor society, Free Body Club, and the business manager of the Technique, Georgia Tech's student newspaper, as well as a Second Lieutenant in the school's Reserve Officer's Training Corps (ROTC). After graduating from Tech with his bachelor's degree, he began further study, earning a Master of Science degree in 1934. During his time in graduate school, he was also an assistant instructor at Georgia Tech.

After earning his degrees, Whitfield took a job at Georgia Power, which at that point owned Atlanta's public transit bus system. He soon became the chief developer of new buses that used air conditioning to keep passengers comfortable in the sweltering Atlanta heat. Because of Randolph Whitfield, Atlanta became the first city in the world to have an air-conditioned bus system.

On March 14, 1940, Whitfield was waiting in his car at a traffic light in Atlanta when two young men came up to him, threatened him with a gun, hijacked his car, and drove to Cumming, Georgia. During the four-hour ordeal, the two men, Clyde W. Milsap and Ralph W. Day of Adamsville, Georgia, robbed Whitfield of his watch and wallet. The night ended when the car became stuck in a puddle of mud on a country road in Cumming and Whitfield escaped when the kidnappers went to look for help and warned him to stay in the car. He escaped, and made it to the town of Cumming, where he called the police. The two men were arrested and Whitfield was sent home with no injuries. The subsequent investigation and trial were covered in the Atlanta news for months.

Outside of his work at Georgia Power, Whitfield was an avid member of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, and became the President of the Greater Atlanta Georgia Tech Club, Trustee of the Georgia Tech National Alumni Association, and State Chairman of the Joint Tech-Georgia Development Fund. In 2006, Mr. Whitfield's family gave him a gift--they endowed a full President's Scholarship at Georgia Tech in his name. Thanks to this, one promising Georgia Tech student is awarded the Randolph Whitfield President's Scholarship each year.

According to Mr. Whitfield's ANAK obituary, "he was a charter member, trustee and Vice President of the Georgia Conservancy, Chairman of the Environment Legislation Committee of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, member of the Metropolitan Atlanta Water Resources Study Group, and the Isaac Walton League. He served as a member of Gov. Jimmy Carter's State Reorganization Study Group and as Chairman of the Southern States Energy Board Engineering Task Force on Nuclear Energy Planning."

Whitfield was also a member of the Peachtree Kiwanis Club, Atlanta Athletic Club, and St. Philip's Episcopal Cathedral. He was an avid sailor and helped found the Atlanta Yacht Club as well.

Professionally, Randolph Whitfield was listed in "Who's Who in Engineering," was Chairman of the Atlanta chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers, Vice President of the Atlanta chapter of the American Nuclear Society, and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Whitfield married Shirley Brown McPhaul on June 25, 1931. Together, they had three children: Clare Grantham Whitfield (b. 1936), Dr. Randolph Whitfield, Jr. (b. 1938), and Mary Croom Whitfield Coward (b. 1943). Clare was once married to NASA astronaut Rusty Schweickart. Randolph, Jr. is a well-known opthalmologist in Kenya, working to promote health in African countries. Mary's son, Randolph Whitfield McDow, graduated from Georgia Tech in 1995, and, like his grandfather, participated in the Co-op program and was a member of Omicron Delta Kappa.

Shirley died in October 1996, at the age of 86. Randolph Whitfield remarried in 1997 at the age of 88 to Julia Gatewood Pearson, whose first husband, T. Brooks Pearson, was also a Georgia Tech graduate. They lived in Canterbury Court, an Episcopal assisted living center. Randolph and Julia were married until her death in 2006 at the age of 92.

Randolph Whitfield died on August 1, 2009, at the age of 100.


Scope and Content Note

This collection contains many images, formats include: black & white and color photographs, card photographs, negatives, postcards, reprints of historical images, and photocopies. These visual materials relate to Randolph Whitfield and his family. Whitfield made a hobby of researching his genealogy, so many of the portraits are of his ancestors on both his mother's and father's sides, the Randolphs and the Whitfields, respectively. Both of these families were very powerful and wealthy landowners in the Southeastern United States for many years, and they owned magnificent plantation homes, mostly in North Carolina and Florida, that have since been turned into historical sites. Whitfield documented many of these homes and photographs of them are also included in this collection. There are also photographs of Randolph and Shirley's children, grandchildren, and family events. Additionally, there are scrapbooks documenting the Whitfields' life through the 1950s.

SERIES 4: Shirley McPhaul Whitfield Scrapbook "Our First Scrap Book", 1909-ca. 1950 and undated

Arrangement

This series retains its original order and is arranged generally in chronological order.

Scope and Content

This series contains a scrapbook compiled by Shirley Whitfield. Shirley most likely started the scrapbook when she and Randolph became engaged. The first several pages contain photos and memorabilia of Randolph and Shirley, individually, from their childhoods through college years. There are many pages related to their engagement, wedding, and honeymoon. There are also several pages detailing a cross-country trip they took in 1931. The rest of the scrapbook contains photos and mementos of the Whitfields’ life together through approximately 1950.

There are some items which either became loose from the scrapbook or were simply tucked into the book; some of these date up into the early 1960s. This scrapbook is in fairly good condition; however, the entire scrapbook, including the loose items, has been photocopied for preservation.

SERIES 5: European Tour, 1933



Subseries 1: European Tour Scrapbook, 1933

This subseries contains a scrapbook compiled by Shirley Whitfield documenting the summer of 1933 when she and Randolph toured Europe. Travelling by ship, they took their car “Elvirey” with them. They were accompanied by several 1933 Tech graduates: Herbert Haley, Herbert Williams, and James “Peachtree” Tanner. Randolph organized visits to various factories and civil engineering sites then submitted a report for credit toward his graduate degree. The report entitled, “An Engineering Tour of Europe,” detailed the conditions and practices of the European engineering sites he visited.

The scrapbook documents their trip from the journey’s start in New York City to their return through Canada, a visit to the World’s Fair in Chicago, and ends with their trip to Florida and North Carolina to visit their parents.

The scrapbook, well-organized in the chronological order of their trip, includes photos, memorabilia, and clippings from tourist pamphlets. Most of the items are identified.

Most of the photographs, and some of the memorabilia, were attached in the scrapbook by photo corners. Most of the other mementos were pinned onto the pages, however, prints cut from brochures were pasted. Because of the poor condition of the pages, the photographs were removed, as were any other items that were not pasted onto the pages.

Unfortunately, this scrapbook is in poor condition with very brittle pages. Many of the page edges have already crumbled away. The entire scrapbook was photocopied for preservation and the archivist tried to faithfully record the hand-written captions. These captions are set in quotes in the item descriptions and an asterisk is used to indicate missing letters or words.

Please use the photocopies or the original photos rather than the actual scrapbook pages.

This subseries retains the original order of the scrapbook, following the chronological order of the trip.
