    schema:description ""Using primary sources and extensive interviews with the governor and his contemporaries, Henderson tells the full story of Vandiver's life as a transitional figure in the political history of the state. He portrays Vandiver as a man cast by circumstances into presiding over a crisis greater than any faced by a Georgia governor since the Civil War. Henderson also notes some of Vandiver's less recognized accomplishments, including the involvement of state government in furthering tourism, foreign investment, and industry. Ernest Vandiver is here recognized for his significant achievements guiding the state through a period of rapid transformation."--Jacket."@en ;
