Portrait of Former Professors in Special Collections Reading Room

On October 29th, a painting by local artist Elaine Wheeler Chambers was unveiled in the reading room of Special Collections, where it now hangs on the 4th floor of the Zach S. Henderson Library.  Later, on November 11th,  it was exhibited at the Veterans Day celebration at the Emma Kelly Theater. This painting shows three veterans of World War II who became professors here at Georgia Southern, done from photos of the three during the War.  These are Dr. Kemp Mabry (1925-2007), Professor of Education; Roxie Remley, Professor of Art; and Dr. Georgia Watson (1912-1993), Professor of Psychology.  Ms. Remley was present and spoke of her experiences as a member, like Dr. Watson, of the Women’s Army Corps in England.
