Albert Saye (1912-1989) was a political science professor at the University of Georgia and one of the most well-known scholars of Georgia history and politics. Six of his twelve books focused on Georgia history, and several of his Georgia history textbooks were the most widely used of the time. He completed both his undergraduate and master's degrees at the University of Georgia. His doctoral dissertation, which he completed at Harvard University, was based on the original charter of Georgia.
He taught for many decades at UGA beginning in 1934, becoming a professor in 1939. In 1957 he was named a professor of law and distinguished professor of political science, and from 1975 until his retirement in 1979 he held a Richard B. Russell Professorship. He was also a Fulbright scholar in India in 1982. The University of Georgia established the Albert Berry Saye Professorship in political science after his death in 1989. In 2003 the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia established the Albert Berry Saye Professorship in History at UGA.
