Personality Trait/ early years
He gave a $1 million plus land gift to Emory University, a Methodist college, for the school to move from Oxford, Georgia, to Atlanta. This gift was influenced by Asa's younger brother, Methodist Bishop Warren Akin Candler, who became president of Emory. Candler also gave millions to what would later become Emory Hospital. The school's original library now houses classrooms and a reading room named for him, as well as endowed chairs in the school's chemistry department
In 1906 he completed Atlanta's then-tallest building, the Candler Building, whose intricately detailed 17 stories still stands at Peach tree and Auburn.In 1912 the Candler Building in New York opened. And so i guess that his new idea was to make a Atlanta's tallest building and that compacts my life to not let dreams be dreams.
