Edwin recently completed a memoir called A Professional Savannahian. It opens with this explanation of the title: “I began the practice of writing ‘Savannah’ on my name tag whenever I attended an event away from home. I was proud of my hometown, and seeing the name often provoked interesting conversations among the people I met. My children started calling me a professional Savannahian. The nickname stuck. It’s an honor I have been proud to carry.”
