Carl Vinson Born

Politician Carl Vinson was born in Baldwin County, Georgia. One of the most influential national legislators of the twentieth century, Vinson’s legislative career spanned fifty years and one month - a record of longevity that stood until 1994. Vinson was noted particularly for his dedication to the United States Armed Services. To honor him, the Institute of Government at the University of Georgia was formally named the Carl Vinson Institute of Government in 1983.
