Georgia Rejects Name-Change Advisories

 From a Washington Post STORY.

The 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.

Among 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.”
