Records of Delta Engineers, Smyrna
Does anyone know where the records of Delta Engineers and Surveyors, Inc. of Smyrna are?  The company was operated by Wiley J. Busbin and Thomas M. Wilson, in the 1960s and 1970s.  Wiley states the records were given to Watts and Browning of Atlanta.  Watts and Browning later dissolved or went out of business and Wiley does not know where their records went.  Thanks.

Thanks very much. I spoke with Bruce at the firm and they have the records and have scanned them. Tom Wilson was intelligent, extremely well educated, thoroughly professional in his surveying work, and devoted an extraordinary amount of his time and energy to raising the standards of the profession in general. His death at a relatively young age was a considerable blow to all of us. Tom drew little cartoons on many of the plats made by Delta Engineers. While I was speaking with Bruce, Bruce described several of them on the scanned plats he was looking at, and it brought back memories.

Tom was one of the best. I followed him on a tract that had a lake. The survey was excellent and the man in the boat fishing on the lake was a classic. When I passed the RLS, he sent a note expressing that my Father who had passed a few years before would be proud of me. I always respected his professionalism.
