Biographical/Historical Note:  The Dannenberg Company was founded in 1867 in Macon, Georgia, by Joseph Dannenberg.  The first location of the store was on Cotton Avenue.  Joseph’s son, Walter, went to work for the store at 16 years of age and was the first in the area to introduce ready-to-wear skirts to its customers.  Walter remembered that the ladies’ favorite was “a skirt made of near silk that was loved because they said it swished as they walked.” The store became the largest enterprise of its type in Macon.  It closed its doors in 1965.

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying The Dannenberg Company (Macon, Ga.) Records will gain insight into a Jewish-owned department store in central Georgia. All material is arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
