George Washington Scott
Birth: Feb. 22, 1829
Death: Oct. 3, 1903

Educator. He was the founder and main benefactor of the school that eventually became Agnes Scott College (first known as the Decatur Female Seminary in 1887). He was a Decatur industrialist who in 1890 donated land, equipment, the first building, and money for a permanent endowment to the school. In 1906 it was renamed in honor of his mother, and in 1907 it became one of the first accredited colleges or universities in Georgia.
