UGA Heritage:

Terry Magazine Generation Families

Terry College publishes a quarterly magazine, Terry Magazine, highlighting prominent alumni, events, and stories related to the College. The latest, spring 2012, edition is a special publication filled with information regarding the Terry Centennial being celebrated this year. A particular section highlights 14 families of at least three generations with ties to Terry. As the article by Charles McNair explains, these alumni “are among the most accomplished and best known.”

Many of the patriarchs and matriarchs who began these Terry lines have since passed away, but their legacy lives on through their children and grandchildren. The multigenerational families spotlighted in the magazine make up a dynamic pool of majors, industries, personalities, and stories, each with their own distinct impact at the University and in their communities.
