Walter F. George – Jurist-Senator-Statesman – Champion of Vocational Education

This was erected on the grounds of the Dooly County Courthouse by the Georgia Vocational Association in 1950, when George was one of the most powerful men in the United States Senate. It was likely a favor to Senator George for his support of federal funding of vocational programs in American high schools.
