Pop Quiz: Georgians Who Deserve to Be Remembered

Quick.....name someone from our state who painted with some of the top Impressionist painters in our nation during the earliest days of the twentieth century.

Need another hint?

This female was from Rome, Georgia. Her father was a minister.

She rubbed elbows with some very powerful people at the uppermost levels of our national government.

Still not sure?

Head on over to History Is Elementary and find out who I'm referring to.

Hello...

My name is Philip Kovacs, and I am a former GA teacher turned teacher teacher turned web activist.

I am now head of a national organization working to replace NCLB with something more responsive to the diverse needs of students and families.

We are launching our national movement to end NCLB in Atlanta on March 17th, and we hope you'll join us.

Learn more about us here.

Great question! As a Roman, I know ths one, of course. We (The Rome Area Heritage Foundation) have just sponsored a restoration and two copies of the portrait of this Georgian in hopes that the portraits will hang in the Capitol at Washington and the state capitol in Atlana.

BTW here is a post I put up in January that includes some pics from this Georgian's funeral.
