Calvin Peete Dead at Age 71


African American golf great Calvin Peete died earlier this morning, April 29, in Atlanta. Peete was 71-years old, according to WSB-TV in Atlanta.

Peete was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 18, 1943, as the eighth of nine children. The son of an auto factory worker, Peete went on to become the most successful black golfer on the PGA Tour—before the career of Tiger Woods, gaining 12 PGA Tour wins. During his 20-year career on tour, he won four times, in 1982, finishing fourth on the money list that year. He also had two-win seasons in 1983, ’85 and ’86.

The Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, May 16 at 11:00 a.m. at the Impact Church in Jacksonville, Fla.

About the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History

Ms. Lucy Craft Laney The Lucy Craft Laney Museum is the only African American Museum in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA, Augusta and its Surrounding Areas). The museum, which opened in 1991, is a small house museum that was the former home of Miss Lucy Craft Laney.

The museum is located in the Historic Laney-Walker District, near the original site of the Haines Normal and Industrial Institute. The mission of the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History is to promote the legacy of Ms. Lucy Craft Laney through arts and history.  We accomplish this awesome task by educating and exposing children and adults of the CSRA, the State and beyond to the arts, history, literature and leadership through exhibits and programs.

The Preservation of a Legacy
Ms. Laney dedicated her life to providing educational opportunities for Black youth in the Augusta area. Ms. Laney was the founder of the Haines Normal and Industrial Institute which was located on the present site of the Lucy Laney Comprehensive High School. She started the first kindergarten for Black children in Augusta and founded the Lamar School of Nursing for Black women.

The Lucy Laney High School, Laney Walker Boulevard (formerly Gwinnett Street) and the Laney Walker North Historic District have all been named in Ms. Laney's honor. Now through the restoration of her home by Delta House, Inc., another important cultural institution has been dedicated in her memory. The museum is open to all.
