Collection Description

Biographical Note

Richard B. Russell, Sr. was born near Marietta, Georgia on April 27, 1861. He received his B.A., Ph.d. (1879) and L.L.B. (1880) from the University of Georgia. His first marriage was on May 13, 1883 to Marie Louise Tyler, who died in 1886. Russell re-married Blandina (Ina) Dillard on June 24, 1891, with whom he had thirteen children.

Russell's career as a lawyer, legislator, businessman, and judge extended over fifty-eight years. Beginning his law practice in Athens in 1880, Russell was elected to the Georgia General Assembly from Clarke County in 1882. During his three terms in the Georgia General Assembly he gave strong support to higher education and backed the establishment of the Georgia Institute of Technology and a women's college, Georgia Normal and Industrial College for Women in Milledgeville. He was later named to the board of directors of that institution. Russell also was a member of the University of Georgia's Board of Trustees from 1887 to 1889 and 1919 to 1933. He was chairman of the board from 1923 to 1931. He was also appointed to the first Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, organized on January 1, 1932, but he only served until July 1, 1933.

At twenty-one, Russell was the youngest member of the House of Representatives when he was elected in 1883. In 1886 and 1887, he served as chairman of the Rules Committee in the House. From 1885 to 1894, he was a member of the Athens Board of Education, and in 1897, he served on Winder's school board. From 1903 to 1907, he held the same office in Russell, a new village at the edge of Winder which Russell chartered in 1902. In 1888, Russell was elected solicitor-general of the Western circuit of the superior courts of Georgia . After serving eight years, he resigned in 1896 to return to practicing law in Winder. On October 31, 1898 he was elected by the General Assembly to a four-year term as judge of the Superior Court of the Western circuit.

Meanwhile, Russell was active in business and publishing. In 1886 he assisted in organizing Athens Street Railway Company, and the following year, he helped to establish the Athens Savings Bank. From 1890 to 1893, he edited Athens Daily Ledger, and in 1894, he participated in setting up the North Georgia Telephone Company.

In 1904, Russell made an unsuccessful bid for the chief justice of the Georgia Supreme Court. Two years later, he ran against Hoke Smith for governor. Despite a vigorous campaign, he lost the race. But, in November 1906, he was elected judge on the newly created Court of Appeals, where he served until 1916, the last three years as chief judge. In 1911, he made another unsuccessful bid for governor and in 1916, he lost in a race for Congress.

In 1916, he resigned from the Court of Appeals and returned to Winder to his law practice. In 1922 he ran for chief justice of the Georgia Supreme Court and won. He was less successful in 1926, when he was defeated in the race for the United States Senate by Walter F. George. Russell continued to serve as chief justice on the Georgia Supreme Court until his death on December 3, 1938 . He is interred in the family cemetery in Russell , Georgia .
