Another man from Plains

Cowboy boots, a NASCAR jacket and a Billy Beer T-shirt were among the items on display in ďThe Other Man from Plains: Billy Carterís Wardrobe Revealed,Ē an exhibit in the Barrow Hall Gallery this spring. The display featured clothing once belonging to the former presidentís colorful brother, including a boxing robe worn by Smoking Joe Frazier and T-shirts from Jimmy Carterís presidential and gubernatorial campaigns. Billy Carter, who died in 1988, lived in Plains most of his life, managing the family peanut business for a while and in 1972 buying an old service station, which became the town hot spot during the Carter campaign. The exhibit was sponsored by UGAís Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Interiors, which is working with the Plains Better Hometown Association and the Carter family to open the Billy Carter Service Station Museum in Plains.
