Caroline Pafford was born in Waycross, Georgia on August 26, 1903, the youngest of seven children. Her father was Elias Pafford, a school teacher, and her mother was Lev Zan Hall Pafford. After she graduated from Waycross High School, she married her English teacher, William Miller, and they moved to Baxley, Georgia. At that time, Caroline never dreamed that she would be responsible for shining a light on her beloved Georgia and its rich history, winning a Pulitzer Prize, and leading the way for other Southern writers in American literature.
