Abstract:  Garland Pinholster grew up in Clyatville, Georgia in a farming family. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia, served at Fort Benning during the Korean War, coached college sports at Oglethorpe University, and was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives. In this interview he talks about his coaching career, his entry into politics, and his role in the growth of the Republican Party in Georgia. Pinholster also discusses the influence of early Republicans candidates Barry Goldwater and Paul Coverdell, his views on political extremism and the Tea Party, and his work on the State School Board and the Georgia State Board of Transportation.
