This Day in Georgia History

August 28, 1931

Executive Branch Reorganized

Gov. Richard Russell signed an act providing for a major reorganization of the executive branch of Georgia state government. Russell had campaigned for the office of governor during the Depression on a platform to restructure state government to promote economy and efficiency. One of the major results of the reorganization act was to abolish separate boards of trustees for each college and university in Georgia and instead create a single Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
