Ellis Gibbs Arnall (March 20, 1907 in Newnan, Georgia December 13, 1992)[1] was an American politician, a liberal[citationneeded] Democrat who served as the 69th Governor of the U.S. state of Georgia from 1943 to 1947.

Education

Arnall attended Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, the University of the South, and the University of Georgia School of Law.[2] He was admitted to the practice of law in 1931. While attending Mercer University, Arnall was initiated into Kappa Alpha Order.
Early career

In 1932, Coweta County voters elected Arnall to the Georgia House of Representatives. Arnall was elected 'Speaker Pro Tempore', the second highest officer position in the Georgia House. Governor Eurith D. Rivers appointed Arnall, then thirty-one, to a vacancy in the office of state attorney general.
Governor

Actions undertaken by Governor Eugene Talmadge's had caused the state's colleges to lose accreditation. Arnall unseated Talmadge in the 1942 primary, 174,757 (57.7 percent) to 128,394 (42.4 percent).[3] Without Republican opposition, Arnall hence became the youngest governor then serving in the United States.

Arnall obtained the repeal of the poll tax, ratification in 1945 of a new state constitution, and a state employee merit system. He also retired the Georgia state debt. When young men were drafted into the armed forces during World War II, Arnall argued that youths old enough to fight in war should be able to vote for their country's leadership. He succeeded in lowering the voting age to eighteen more than two decades before the 26th Amendment to the United States Constitution implemented that change nationally. Georgia thus became the first state to grant the franchise to 18-year olds. Arnall also removed the prison system under the governor's control. He established a board of corrections to oversee state prisons and a pardon and parole board to handle such requests. He removed the University of Georgia from political machinations,[4] and he led efforts to prevent a governor from exercising dictatorial powers, as opponents of Governor Eugene Talmadge had alleged occurred during that administration. Arnall's reforms won him attention from the national press.
