A.H. Davison Dies At Athens Home

Athens, Ga., January 10. - A.H. Davison, 67, president of the Davison-Nicholson Company department store, and prominent Athens citizen for 40 years, died suddenly tonight at 7 o'clock at his home here. While the passing of Mr. Davison was sudden and unexpected, he had been in ill health for some time, although he was up and about.

Mr. Davison was born at Woodville in 1859 and come to Athens 48 years ago and had been in business here for 40 years. The firm of which he was president, Davison Nicholson Company, has for a number of years been one of the leading department stores here, catering to this section of Georgia and to the large number of students in the college here.

He took an active interest in all civic affair (sic) affecting the city welfare and was a pioneer in the development of the apple industry in northeast Georgia. He was a member of the First Methodist church of Athens. For a number of years he was a trustee of the State Normal college here.

He is survived by his widow, who before her marriage was Miss Ida Dorsey; one daughter, Mrs. E.L. Ackiss, of Washington, D.C.; two sons, A.E. and A.H. Davison, Jr. of Athens; two brothers, R.E. Davison of Woodville, chairman of the prison commission, and T.C. Davison of Comer.
