Mildred English's "College in the Country" traces the development of adult education programs at West Georgia College and in surrounding rural areas. The College in the Country program began in 1949, when West Georgia College chaplain J. Carson Pritchard was asked to conduct Bible study classes by residents of Smithfield, Georgia. These classes evolved into a lecture series on a variety of topics and eventually the program officially formed. "College in the Country" quickly spread to other communities and lasted into the 1960s, becoming the basis for the present Department of Continuing Education at the University of West Georgia.
