Local blogger and Greenfield city manager, Ron Coffey, recently posted this newspaper clipping about the death of Edward Lee McClain. Several years ago MHS graduate George Hull told me about McClain having died from complications following a hip fracture. Ron found this clipping on a website in Atco, Georgia. Atco was a town founded by McClain where he built a factory to manufacture cloth for his horse pad business. To house his workers he constructed a number of homes and community buildings. Many of the homes still stand but the community has since been annexed by the city of Cartersville, GA and the factory, American Textile Company (ATCO), demolished. After McClain no longer needed the cloth production the factory was sold to the Goodyear Rubber Company and was used for decades to produce bias cloth used in the manufacture of tires.
