Running on Full: The Story of Ruth & Ruby Crawford
By Neil Wilkinson
About the Book
Of the many terms used to describe Ruth and Ruby Crawford: Pioneering, courageous, honest, ambitious, generous, funny, witty, energetic, reverent, spiritual, faithful, altruistic, kind, sweet, and any number of other superlatives, these two extraordinary women thought themselves really pretty ordinary.
They grew up in Temple, Georgia, a small town forty-five miles west of Atlanta. In 1943, Ruth and Ruby moved to Atlanta, which they ultimately called home. Running on Full: The Story of Ruth & Ruby Crawford is an account of their interesting, challenging, and fulfilled lives, told from their unique point of view. These women were not eccentrics, but women of substance, feminists without the rhetoric, pioneers as lawyers in a time when there were few women in the profession, and as bankers, where they were among the first women bank officers in the country in the 1960s.
