Administrative/Biographical History

George Hiley Slappey (1896-1977) was born in Marshallville, Georgia, to Jasper Uriah Slappey (1863-1908) and Willie Mcghee Slappey (1867-1921). He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1916. In 1924, he married Mary Pansy Aiken (1892-1982) and they had one son, George Aiken Slappey (1929-1993). Slappey taught at O'Keefe High School in Atlanta, Georgia, and wrote on the topic of education.

The World Organization of the Teaching Profession was an organization founded in 1946 to create unity between teachers and to promote peace through international cooperation.
