We were saddened to learn of the passing of Curtis Beall, UGA alum, cheerleader, and WWII veteran. The University Archives unit of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library maintains the Curtis A. Beall Papers, which holds his 2006 book, Memoirs of a Marine Dawg: From Rose Bowl to Pacific Theater as well as photographs and clothing from his time at the University of Georgia. For any UGA football fan, Beall’s presence was a highlight at homecoming games where he would wear his 1942 cheerleader’s sweater and help lead the crowd in cheering on the home team.
