Harrison returned to Emory, receiving a Doctor of Divinity in 1866, and became pastor of the First Methodist Church of Atlanta.

Slaton was born near Warm Springs, Georgia and attended schools at Summerfield, Alabama and Mt. Zion, Georgia. He graduated from Emory College in 1851, and opened a school for boys in Oak Bowery, Alabama. He soon moved that school—named "Slaton's Male Academy"—to Auburn, and when the East Alabama Male College (EAMC) was chartered in 1856, Slaton's Academy was absorbed into EAMC, with Slaton becoming head of the preparatory department. When the collegiate department of EAMC was opened in 1859, Slaton was named professor of applied mathematics. Toward the end of the 1861—1862 term, EAMC's preparatory department was merged into the Auburn Female College, and Slaton became the effective principal of the merged institution. Also in 1862, Slaton became a major in the 37th Alabama Regiment of the Confederate army which mustered in Auburn and included in its ranks many of the school's older male students. When the regiment was ordered to Mississippi, Slaton continued teaching classes to students in the regiment. Slaton and the school's students were captured after the Siege of Vicksburg in July 1863, paroled, and returned to service in November 1863. At the Battle of Lookout Mountain later that month, Slaton and his students were yet again captured, and, as his exchange from parole paperwork had not yet arrived, were ordered executed by Ulysses S. Grant. At the special request of Confederate senator Benjamin Harvey Hill, Slaton's sentence was commuted, and he and his students were sent to the Johnson's Island prisoner of war camp in Lake Erie. Slaton continued teaching classes there, and expanded the student body to include other prisoners and some of the Union African American guards—the first blacks to attend the school. Slaton and the school's students were freed in June 1865, and Slaton left teaching to become a farmer. In 1872, he became the first principal of the Boys High School of Atlanta, a position he held until his appointment as superintendent of the Atlanta Public Schools in 1879. Slaton held the superintendency of Atlanta schools until 1907. Slaton received an honorary degree from the University of Georgia in 1891, and W.F. Slaton Elementary School in Atlanta was named for him. Slaton's son, John Marshall Slaton, was Governor of Georgia from 1911-1912 and 1913-1915.
