Collection Description

Historical Note

Dr. Horace Montgomery was a professor of history at the University of Georgia from 1947-1978, and was also a Fulbright scholar to Austria in 1960. He was raised in Derrick City, Pennsylvania and graduated from Ohio Northern University before earning his Ph.D from the University of Georgia--the first doctorate conferred by UGA. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. As a historian, Montgomery authored several books, including Johnny Cobb: Confederate Aristocrat, Cracker Parties, and Howell Cobb's Confederate Career. He was also editor of Georgians in Profile: Historical Essays in Honor of Ellis Merton Coulter, published by the University of Georgia Press in 1959.

Dr. Montgomery also played an important role in the integration of the University. When UGA's first black students, Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton Holmes, were suspended in the aftermath of integration riots, Montgomery wrote up a resolution demanding the students' reinstatement. The document was signed by four hundred faculty members, and Hunter and Holmes were allowed to return to campus.

Dr. Montgomery passed away in 2001 at the age of 94.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of files Montgomery maintained during his tenure in the Department of History at the University of Georgia. Some of these deal with the topic of UGA's integration, while others are Montgomery's lectures and articles on historical topics, such as Howell Cobb and Koinonia.
