Juliette Low in Georgia State Capitol

Bust of Juliette Gordon Low at the Georgia State Capitol

One of the featured stories in the 2010 Georgia Archives Month display is the Atlanta Journal-Constitution story of the dedication of the Juliette Gordon Low bust in the State Capitol. You can read the newspaper article, see the picture of Governor Jimmy Carter with the Girl Scouts, and view the original invitation and program of the ceremony.

On October 21, 1974, Juliette Gordon Low became the second woman to be honored in the Georgia Hall of Fame at the State Capitol (the first was Margaret Mitchell.) Eleanor Platt, who sculpted the marble bust of Margaret Mitchell, also sculpted the bronze one of Juliette Low. The bust was paid for by the nickels, dimes and quarters of Girl Scouts in the State of Georgia.
