Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Troops from Bulloch County arrived at Auckland, New Zealand on October 7, 1943 and after a stay of one month, they shipped out again, this time on the Dutch Island Steamer the Bosch Fontaine. They arrived at the island of New Caledonia, where they received orders to set up defensive positions around the island's air bases. They boarded a truck and headed up the mountain roads for their camps up in the foothills surrounding the capital, Noumea.

Thinking of God

American physicist and educator Charles Townes (1915 - ), co-winner of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for the development of the "maser" - acronym for "Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation," from which was developed the more commonly known "laser" - was asked if he had a sense of achievement in what he had accomplished. "Not really," he said, and told a story about a beaver and chipmunk viewing the enormous Hoover Dam for the first time. Caught off guard, they were overwhelmed. When the beaver recovered, he said boldly, "I didn't build it, but it is based on an idea of ...

Kathy Bradley

The Saturday morning that I finally tackled the cleaning out of the attic, I found myself surrounded by a rug rolled into a long cigar, a doll cradle, Christmas tree stands of various sizes, a cooler and probably 25 cardboard boxes, some of them mislabeled. Wreaths hung from the rafters by ten-penny nails and insulation billowed up from the unfloored part of the attic like cotton candy.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

On October 29, 1914, J. A. Brannen reported that there were more than 400 autos in all of Bulloch County. Not everybody was thrilled with these new contrivances: an editorial reported that "farmers found that the cost of keeping an automobile in repair and operation is more than the cost of keeping horses to perform the same tasks." By 1915, even more rules had been written: the speed in town was now 8 mph, and 15 mph elsewhere; and it was declared that there was to be no "promiscuous use of horns for noise making" by their drivers. Policemen were ...

Foundation of football

In 1924, the hiring of first head football coach, E.G. Cromartie, brought a collegiate football program to the students at the Georgia Normal School. He was replaced in 1927 by head coach H.A. Woodle, who himself was replaced by head coach B.L. "Crook" Smith. His "Blue Tide" even played a football game in the then-unfinished stadium which has since become known as the "Orange Bowl" down in Miami, Fla. While the athletic programs at South Georgia Teachers College enjoyed some success, the involvement of America's armed forces in World War II resulted in the discontinuation of ...
