Honoring Baldwin - Around the Arch
December 2011 Issue
A statue of UGA founder and first president Abraham Baldwin was unveiled on North Campus, a gift from the UGA Alumni Association. Baldwin, a member of the Georgia State House, the Continental Congress and the U.S. Senate, founded UGA, the first state-chartered university in the United States, 226 years ago. The initial idea for the statue came from Loch Johnson, Regents Professor of International Affairs and Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor. He envisioned it adjacent to Old College because the building is a replica of the building where Baldwin studied at Yale. Funding for the statue came from private donations as well as a $90,000 matching grant from the UGA Alumni Association.
