Dale Edwards brings more than 30 years of newspaper journalism experience to the role as publisher of Southern Historic Magazine. He has lived in the South his entire life, and, from an early age, became fascinated with the region's textile mills. He writes all of the content, takes many of the photos and carries out the layout and design of the publication.
Edwards is a self-taught graphic designer. He also taught himself oil painting. His artwork has sold across the U.S. and he has won awards for his work, which also often focuses on mills, barns and other utilitarian buildings. Dale's artistic flair is evident in the layout and design of Southern Historic Magazine.
Edwards says Southern Historic Magazine is another way for him to share his artwork with people. It is his hope that, through the stories and photographs, readers will gain an understanding of the history of not only the buildings, but also the people who spent their lives working in them; and the people who now devote their time to preserving the buildings for future generations.
