Dorothy Kingery's History

Dr. Kingery, sister of the late Jim Williams, is a native Georgian. She graduated from the University of Alabama, has a master's degree in history and received a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Georgia where she was a member of the faculty, a Fellow of the Institute for Behavioral Research and, for five years, was Director of the university's Survey Research Center. Author of more than one hundred academic papers, articles and research reports, Dr. Kingery was a faculty member at Armstrong Atlantic State University and is now a consultant with the Public Service Center there.

Mercer House has been Dr. Kingery's primary residence since 1990. She and her daughters, Susan and Amanda, Jim Williams only nieces, continue to enjoy the house and her brother's tradition of sharing it with others. Active in community activities, the author is a trustee of the Telfair Museum of Art, a board member of the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home and a member of Historic Savannah Foundation.
