Biographical/Historical note

George Terry Lathrop's career in traffic, city and land use planning began in the late 1950s when he earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from North Carolina State University (1957). Following a two-year stint in the Air Force, from 1958 to 1960, he resumed his formal education, earning a master's degree in city planning from Yale University in 1962. He also picked up a certificate from Yale's Bureau of Highway Traffic that year. Afterwards, he worked for a number of different employers--both public and private, including the New York State Departent of Public Works, Kimley-Horn and Associates in raleigh, John Hamburg & Associates, Barton-Aschman Associates, and the Department of Transportation at the City of Charlotte, NC. He also taught transporation studies and urban design at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1966 to 1973. In the mid-1970s Lathrop was very much involved with the Southern Growth Policies Board and its Commission on the Future of the South; and there is a considerable amount of material in this collection about these organizations. In 1976 he earned a Ph.D. from UNC Chapel Hill. His career also includes the authoring of a long list of articles and books, as well as the delivery of several oral presentations. He was also a member of several professional organizations dealilng with transportation matters.
