Collection Description

Biographical Note

Senator Paul Broun, Sr. was an Athens businessman who served in the Georgia State Senate for thirty-eight years (1962 to 2000). He was renowned for his legislative leadership on budget and education issues. Broun served as chairman of the Appropriations Committee and the University System committee. Broun was also instrumental in securing funds for the Athens perimeter highway that was named Paul Broun Parkway. Broun's political career ended in 2000, after he lost the Democratic primary election. Paul Broun died on February 14, 2005.

Jimmy Carter, the only Georgian elected president of the United States, held the office for one term, 1977-81. His previous public service included a stint in the U.S. Navy, two senate terms in the Georgia General Assembly, and one term as governor of Georgia (1971-75). After being defeated in the presidential election of 1980, he founded the Carter Center, a nonpartisan public policy center in Atlanta.

During his years of public service at the local, state, and federal levels, Carter's policies contained a unique blend of liberal social values and fiscal conservatism. He emphasized comprehensive reform and stressed efficiency and economy, advance planning, and rational organization. He also championed equal rights for all Americans, especially women and minorities, and basic human rights for all people. In 2002 Carter won the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian efforts.
