In the late 19th century, George B. Hinman exemplified Atlanta's entrepreneurial spirit of the New South era. He founded and incorporated his Wood Gummer and Filer Company in November 1897. Hinman's progressive business practices and personal ideals led him to build his cotton gin equipment company into a prosperous business despite economic hardships of the times. Having succeeded at his diverse construction businesses, he decided in 1909 to sell his controlling shares of the Wood Gummer and Filer Company to J. Wilder Glover, owner of the Glover Machine Works.
