#2- named the falcons (answered)

Who was officially awarded with becoming the person to suggest the Atlanta football franchise be nicknamed the Falcons? What was this person (job)? And where did s/he live? I don't need an exact name for her/him.

Atlanta held a contest in 1965 and many chose Falcons for the NFL’s newest team. The best argument was submitted by Julia Elliot, a teacher from Griffin, Ga. - "the Falcon is proud and dignified, with great courage and fight. It never drops its prey. It is deadly and has a great sporting tradition."<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by PackerAttack84 on Thu Feb 03, 2005 8:58 pm EST.</span>

Dr. Duran Duran,

Making it hard on the rookie? Same time, but yours came up first, so you win by a split-second.

Yeah, it was a little strange having someone other than Joshyboy answer questions so quickly! Thanks!
