“I am very honored to hold a chair named for Dr. Saye, who made such a significant mark on the study of Georgia history and politics during his long, distinguished career here at UGA,” said Inscoe.
Inscoe is the author of numerous books including Race, War, and Remembrance in the Appalachian South and Mountain Masters: Slavery and the Sectional Crisis in Western North Carolina. He is editor of Enemies of the Country: New Perspectives on Unionists in the Civil War South and Georgia in Black and White: Explorations in Race Relations of a Southern State, 1865-1950. UGA Press will publish Inscoe’s Writing the South through the Self: Explorations in Southern Autobiography in spring 2011. In addition, Inscoe has served as the editor of the New Georgia Encyclopedia since its founding in 1999.
Albert Saye was widely known as a leading authority on state and federal constitutional law. The Press recently reissued two of his books, A Constitutional History of Georgia, 1732–1968 and A List of the Early Settlers of Georgia. Both titles are available as print editions or as free ebooks through the Georgia History Ebook Project.
