West Georgia College president

Boyd became the third President of West Georgia College in 1961 after William H. Row died of a heart attack.[1][12][31] Boyd is most known for his peaceful racial integration of the campus (without waiting for a court order) in 1963 by inviting a young black woman, Lillian Williams, to attend the college; she eventually earned two degrees in education and in 1985 received the college's highest honor, the Founderís Award.[12][31][32] In May 1964, Boyd invited Robert F. Kennedy to the dedication of the campus chapel as the Kennedy Chapel, which was named after Robert's brother, U.S. President John F. Kennedy, who had been assassinated in November 1963.[33] During his visit, Robert Kennedy promoted the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was then under debate in the United States Senate.[31][34]
