On this day in 1905, the Weekly Banner noted that industrialist and University of Georgia benefactor George Foster Peabody had done quite a good deed during his summer vacation:
Recently, another person associated with the University of Georgia saved a child from drowning: former Bulldogs tight end Leonard Pope. Though usually he would have been at camp with his NFL team, the Kansas City Chiefs, the current lockout between the NFL owners and players meant that Pope was in his hometown and there to save 6-year-old Bryson Moore from drowning in an Americus swimming pool.
