DeKalb's oldest house and Paul K. Graham
Twelve hours after I cold-called him on the off chance that he might have info about the house, he had two neat folders of information waiting for me — one with Goodwin family history, the other with architectural information about the house.
I sat in his office for an hour and left with enough research material to write a book. A dull, narrowly focused book, but a book nonetheless.
Among the documents Graham had on file was a corporate newsletter published in the 1960s by Atlanta pest-control company Rollins bragging about fumigating the house.

The newsletter also includes a page of fashion tips for Rollins' female employees.
