Carlisle Alumnus Honored


George B. Hartzog, Carlisle Military School, Class of 1937, has been honored, once again, in Colleton County. You can read about him online in various articles and biographies as this latest dedication ceremony was held at the Walterboro Wildlife Sanctuary. The opening of the “additional boardwalk trail is one of the East Coast’s largest estuarine preserves,” according to Rick Tobin in The Colleton Today News.
Hartzog was honored at Camden Military Academy as one of its Distinguished Alumni Award recipients in October 1999.  Hartzog (1920 - 2008) played a key role in securing and maintaining park space for the public. He served as an attorney for a number of agencies, including the General Land Office for the Department of the Interior, and for the National Park Service. The Directorship made him the formal head of the 13,000 people then comprising the Service. While according him certain command prerogatives, it most significantly bestowed a major responsibility on him, namely to maintain the Park Service as a viable entity and to guide it to improved performance as the custodian of the nation’s parks
