Event Description:
ZELL MILLER by Bob Short, 6 Sessions, Tuesday, April 3 - May 8, 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm
 
Zell Miller has been a significant player in American politics since the last half of the twentieth century, serving as mayor of his home town of Young Harris, Georgia state senator, lieutenant governor, governor, U.S. Senator and advisor and confidant of American presidents.
 
Miller’s lifelong friend and Young Harris classmate, political historian and consultant Bob Short, leads a discussion on Miller’s adaptability to the changing political climate that has brought him both praise and criticism over the years as he negotiated his way through such difficult issues as establishing a state lottery for education, desegregation, urban sprawl and the political realignment of the state of Georgia.
 
After retiring in 2001, Bob Short returned to his native north Georgia mountains to concentrate on preserving Georgia's political history. He became the creator of an oral history series entitled "Reflections on Georgia Politics" for Young Harris College's Zell and Shirley Miller Library and the Richard B. Russell Library For Political Studies and Research at the University of Georgia.
