Collection Description

Historical Note

The Georgia Council for Environmental Quality was established in the spring of 1969 to focus the efforts of the many federal, state and local agencies and organizations concerned with improving the environment in the state of Georgia. As such, the Council sought to align itself with a multitude of organizations, such as the state parks department, the Georgia Conservancy and other like-minded groups. Vincent Ellis served as the Council's founding Chairman.

Scope and Content

The Georgia Council for Environmental Quality Records document the formation and work of the organization to promote the improvement of environmental conditions in Georgia and to recruit other organizations to join them in this cause. The Georgia Conservancy was an obvious ally of the group. The records were maintained by Carroll Hart, Council Secretary and former director of the Georgia Department of Archives and History.
