Founded as Male and Female Seminary in 1852, this was a pioneer school of its kind in Georgia. It was reorganized in 1872 as Gordon Institute, named for General John B. Gordon, famed Confederate soldier, Governor and Senator, who was a friend of Charles E. Lambdin, its first president. In 1927 this school became Gordon Military College, an Honor Military School, an accredited, non-sectarian, five year preparatory Junior College. Graduates have won distinction in many fields of endeavor. Senator Richard B. Russell is numbered among its prominent alumni.
