University System of Georgia’s governing board on Monday rejected the
recommendation of an advisory group to rename 75 buildings and colleges
on campuses across the state that honor individuals who supported
slavery, racial segregation and other forms of oppression.
the buildings at issue are more than two dozen at the flagship
University of Georgia. Aderhold Hall, according to the advisory group’s
report, is named for a 20th-century president of the university, Omer
Clyde “O.C.” Aderhold, who was a “committed segregationist.”
