BiS in brief: Historical Society names Dooley board chairman

Historical Society names Dooley board chairman

The Georgia Historical Society has elected Vince Dooley chariman of the Board of Curators for a two-year term. He replaces outgong board member Robert Jepson. Dooley previously served as vice chariman.

Last week’s annual meeting also included the elections of Walter M. “Sonny” Deriso, Jr. as vice chairman, Thomas D. Hills as treasurer and Thomas M. Holder as secretary.

All three have served previously as members of the Board of Curators.

“My time as chairman has been richly rewarding,” Jepson said. “Being chair of the state’s Historical Society is a full-time commitment, but brings with it the joy of getting to know and work with Georgians all across this special state.”

Dooley served as head football coach at the University of Georgia from 1964 to 1988 and as UGA director of athletics from 1979 to 2004.

Coach Dooley is both an avid gardener and a dedicated student of history.
