It is with sadness that the Georgia Historical Society notes the passing of Benjamin J. Tarbutton, Jr., 90, of Sandersville. Ben was a great friend and passionate advocate for history and education who cared deeply about Georgia and its people. A long time member and supporter of GHS, Ben served as a trustee of the GHS Endowment Trust and, with his wife Nancy, was a founding member of the GHS Advisory Board. In 2003, Ben generously helped GHS complete its first endowment campaign by establishing the Benjamin J. Tarbutton, Sr., Fund in memory of his late father, president of the Central of Georgia Railroad, whose corporate records are archived at GHS. A consummate gentleman and scholar, Ben’s leadership and philanthropy made a difference in this institution and our state. We are grateful for his life and join his family in mourning his passing.
