Administrative/Biographical History

Andrew Joseph Guy (1920-2007) was born in Massachusetts to Andrew D. Guy (1898-?) and Louise M. Guy (1897-?). After his family moved to Atlanta, Andrew J. Guy attended Boys' High. He started working at the Arrow Shirt Factory on Murphey Avenue in 1938 as a stenographer and typist, eventually achieving the position of production manager. Arrow Company operated several factories in Georgia, and was a subsidiary of a New England corporation Cluett, Peabody and Co. Guy enlisted as a private in the United States Air Corps in 1941. Two years later he married Marian Theresa O'Rourke (1917-2001) and had six children, Andrew Jr., David G., Anthony, Sue Garner, Patricia Scott, and Larbara Leahy. In 1963 Andrew Guy received a certificate for meritorious service and was inducted into the southern division of Cluett's "Twenty Five Year and Retiree Club." Guy served on leadership positions in the club for several decades.
