The Citadel's Newest Club
picture, taken at our third meeting, tells what it's all about.
Perhaps it was best stated by Landon Moxley when he said "We
had a great time last weekend, always good to be able to spend time
with good people."
From the beginning we felt the club shouldn't be restricted to the
"long grey line" but should include those that make our
lives so rich - wives, significant others, children... don't leave home

Changing of the Guard
As co-founders of the Club, Jack and I want to thank Ray Mayer '74
for his tireless work for the club in arranging events and keeping
the excitement. We have been so very fortunate that Ray accepted
the nomination of 2014 President. On December 7 we
gathered for our Christmas meeting at which time Ray officially handed the gavel over to
Ed White '66.
Many thanks to both of you

Message from our Club President
(This from an email sent to Tom McAlister of the
On December 7, 2014 The Southside Atlanta Citadel
Club held its annual Christmas gathering. We recognized Ray Mayer
for his outstanding service and presented him with the CAA
recognition certificate. Tom, this was very well received by
not only Ray but also club members who felt it was deserved.
As you and I have discussed previously, I believe that a formalized
program to recognize Club officers that serve with distinction
should be a consideration for the Association. As of the 7th,
I assumed responsibility as our Club President and Todd Rivers
('88), an outstanding alum, assumed the position of vice president.
Additionally, Banks Glover ('69) has agreed to stay on as our
webmaster. We look forward to initiating an active cadet
recruiting program in 2015, and the Atlanta Citadel Club has agreed
to work with us on this effort.

When David Boyd '60, Jack Camp '65 and Banks Glover '69 were
lamenting the long sober drive from Newnan to the Atlanta Citadel
Club, the question was raised. "why don't we just start one down
here". Turns out there are over 40 graduates in the immediate
vicinity and that number is growing. So in November 2003 we held our

Telling tales for the '60's are Pat Conroy '67, Carl Anderson
'62 and Jack Camp '65. Conroy entertained members of the Atlanta
Citadel Club February 16th before his book-signing for the standing
room only crowd at the Ansley Golf Club. Conroy was amused that
despite the "honor code", in his travels for these
"signings", he has counted that he's had 68 Citadel
roommates and has actually met 12 former cadets who confessed to
being members of "The Ten". "No kidding....!!!"
