The journal above is pictured  because it featured as its cover image an illustration of an article by June Hall McCash, “Women in the Jekyll Island Club,” an elite club which existed from 1886 until 1942, and which an earlier author, Cleveland Amory, once mistakenly proclaimed never had any female members. This article not only disproves that point, but reveals some of the significant contributions they made by some to the famous historic club and its distinguished membership.

June Hall McCash has published many other articles in scholarly journals and books; however readers of her publications for a more general audience include primarily articles in Georgia Backroads, a quarterly journal about the history, culture, and amazing sites of Georgia, many off the beaten track.
