Rufus Brown Bullock (March 28, 1834 – April 27, 1907) was a Republican Party politician and businessman in Georgia. During the Reconstruction Era he served as the state's governor and called for equal economic opportunity and political rights for blacks and whites in Georgia. He also promoted public education for both, and encouraged railroads, banks, and industrial development. During his governorship he requested federal military help to ensure the rights of freedmen; this made him "the most hated man in the state", and he had to flee the state without completing his term. After returning to Georgia and being found "not guilty" of corruption charges, for three decades afterwards he was an esteemed private citizen.

Bullock died in Albion, New York, in 1907 and was buried in Mt. Albion Cemetery nearby.

He is the only governor of Georgia since 1850 of whom there is no portrait in the Georgia State Capitol.

From the late William A. Turner collection. [jet] [ph:L]
