Fact #116111


Short story:

Georgia State Governor Eugene Talmadge forces the University of Georgia, to dismiss Walter Cocking, Dean of the College of Education. Talmadge had previously accused Cocking of supporting racial integration and now used his influence as an ex-officio member of The Board Of Regents to have Cocking removed. This and other Talmadge racist activities will inspire the 1942 song Governor Talmadge Blues, made popular by Helen Humes.
