MSU Home :: Young, George
An expert on the history of the state, he initiated the Kentucky Historical Tours, the state’s only class on wheels that took students to historical sites. He began his career at University Breckinridge in 1932, taught part time, and then assumed full-time teaching at MSU in 1965. Upon his retirement from the campus in 1979, he was awarded an honorary doctorate in political science. He received the University’s Founders Day Award for University Service in 1988. An excellent pianist, he was an accompanist at social events in the 1930s. He began funding two annual scholarships in 1979, Edwa Peters Young and Allie W. Young, which he endowed in 1986.
