Uga leaves his “papers” to UGA
The legacy of the beloved Georgia mascots Uga I through VII will be preserved at UGA thanks to a gift from the family of Frank W. “Sonny” and Cecelia Seiler to the special collections at the University of Georgia library. Letters and business correspondence related to the dogs, as well as photos and letters from fans, will go into the university archives for safe-keeping. Sonny and Cecilia Seiler have owned all seven of the white English bulldogs that have served as the Georgia mascot, beginning with Uga I (“Hood’s Old Dan”) who was a wedding gift given to Sonny and Cecilia in 1956.
