Product Overview

Ernest Vandiver was elected governor of the state of Georgia in 1958 on a platform of fiscal conservatism and steadfast resistance to desegregation. Having vowed to defend Georgias segregated social system at all costs, Vandiver nevertheless concluded that the state could not close its schools to avoid desegregation. Because of his decision to reject the path taken by George Wallace in Alabama and Orval Faubus in Arkansas and to protect public education in the state by complying with federal court mandates, Vandiver was denounced by the states more vocal proponents of segregation.Using primary sources and extensive interviews with the governor and his contemporaries, Henderson tells the full story of Vandivers life as a transitional figure in the political history of the state. He portrays Vandiver as a man cast by circumstances into presiding over a crisis greater than any faced by a Georgia governor since the Civil War. Henderson also notes some of Vandivers less recognized accomplishments, including the involvement of state government in furthering tourism, foreign investment, and industry. Ernest Vandiver is here recognized for his significant achievements in guiding the state through a period of rapid transformation. *Author: Henderson, Harold Paulk *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 336 *Publication Date: 2008/06/15 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.21 x 6.14 x 0.70 inches
