Encyclopedia of Alabama: Thomas Martin, 12 Dec 2012 [cached]
Martin Lake and DamWith the coming of World War II, Martin worked to acquire defense industries and military bases for Alabama, such as the Hollingsworth & Whitney plant that located in Mobile and the Childersburg-based plants that produced explosives.
In the 1940s, after the federal Securities and Exchange Commission ruled that Commonwealth & Southern had to be broken up under the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935, Martin took a leadership role in creating the Southern Company, which became the holding company for Alabama Power, Mississippi Power, Gulf Power, and Georgia Power by 1949. Martin was adamant that it be a true southern company with a southern board of directors, southern attorneys, and a southern services company headquartered in the South that would provide the engineering services for the operating companies.
In the late 1950s, Martin initiated a second dam construction program that provided electricity for the state's post-World War II boom. In the 1950s and 1960s, Martin led Alabama Power Company's construction of dams and generating plants on the upper Coosa River and on the Warrior River. Martin also helped organize the state chamber of commerce to coordinate and promote economic development.

Logan Martin Lake: Map & Description
Logan Martin Lake, located about 30 miles east of Birmingham in east central Alabama, is a 15,263-acre reservoir popular for boating, fishing, and other recreational pursuits. Alabama Power began construction of the Logan Martin Dam across the Coosa River in 1960. When completed in 1964, Logan Martin Lake began creating hydroelectric power for the region. Though power generation and flood control are the primary purposes of Logan Martin Lake, the reservoir has long served as one of the area's most-loved vacation destinations.
Logan Martin Lake stretches almost 49 miles along the Coosa River, flowing from the Neely Henry Dam to the north to the Logan Martin Dam to the south. With 275 miles of shoreline, there are countless coves to explore. Water levels fluctuate only about five feet between summer pool and winter pool. Homes dot the shoreline, with Pell City just a few miles from the lake. Pell City was a 19th century mill village; today the town is popular with anglers, artists, and antique collectors.
Fishing on Logan Martin Lake is exciting and promising; it is well-known as one of the best spotted bass fishing lakes in the country. Logan Martin Lake is home to spectacular blue catfish, bluegill, channel catfish, crappie, flathead catfish, hybrid bass, largemouth bass, longear sunfish, redear sunfish, saltwater stripe, striped bass, and white bass. Every angler can indulge in his or her favorite pastime. Bring your rod, your bait box, and a free afternoon, and you'll find yourself floating down Logan Martin Lake with fish tugging at your line.
Rent a boat at the local marina or launch your own as you set out for a day of aquatic fun. Take a picnic with you or stop at a lakeside restaurant. The choice is yours, but enjoying a meal as you watch the gentle water lap at the shore will surely be an enjoyable way to relax. After you fill up on good food, troll around a cove or drop anchor for an afternoon swim. If that doesn't strike your fancy, take a lake map with you, go full throttle, and explore Logan Martin Lake at top speed. The adrenaline pumping through your veins is sure to cement this afternoon into your brain as one of the best of your vacation.
Each evening, explore the surrounding area and get to know the local restaurants. Relax in your rental cabin or hotel room, and be sure to catch a famed Alabama sunset as you reflect on the day's activity.
