About George Whitney Calhoun
George Whitney Calhoun (1890–1963) was a sports and telegraph editor for the Press-Gazette of Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA. A native of Green Bay, Calhoun was a co-founder of the Green Bay Packers with Curly Lambeau, and was the team's first publicity director.
Calhoun wrote The Dope Sheet, which served as the Packers' official press release and game program from 1921 to 1924. Honoring Calhoun, the Packers have revived The Dope Sheet as a downloadable game preview sheet on http://www.Packers.com.
Calhoun served as PR director until Lambeau fired him in 1949. In 1963, he died at the age of 73.
