  Creator:   Orr, W. Fred, 1913-1985  
  Dates:   1965-2006  
The W. Fred Orr and Fred Orr II Papers consists of papers, clippings, and photographs documenting the activities of W. Fred Orr and his son, Fred Orr II. In particular, the collection includes papers regarding the 1983 case of the GSEA vs. Governor George Busbee, challenging an early pension granted by the trustees of the Employees Retirement System based on Busbee's contention that his constitutional inability to run for re-election was an "involuntary separation" as a state employee. Fred Orr II represented the GSEA in the case. The GSEA was successful in its challenge of Busbee's claim, as well as influenced permanent change in state legislation. The collection also includes certificates, photographs, and clippings detailing the career of Fred Orr II with his involvement with the Walt Russell campaign for Dekalb County Commissioner as well as clippings detailing his own attempt to run for Dekalb County Commissioner in 1970. This collection also includes clippings detailing Orr's role as cross-examiner for the defense team for Mayor Bill Campbell's criminal trial.
