Forerunner of UGA's computer science program dies at age 84
     A graveside funeral service for Jenkins Comer Whitehead, who established a forerunner of the computer science department at the University of Georgia in the late 1930s, and served as assistant to the university's vice president for business and finance, will be held this morning in Oconee Hill Cemetery.
     Whitehead died Thursday at the age of 84. Whitehead received a bachelor's degree from UGA in 1936, and three years later, became head of the university's IBM Department, a predecessor of the present-day computer science department.
     The IBM Department became a model for universities across the country. In 1968, Whitehead was named assistant to the vice president for business and finance at UGA. He retired in 1982, after 46 years at the university.
     He was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi honorary scholastic society, and a member of Chi Psi fraternity while at UGA.
     After graduation, from 1936-64, he served as the fraternity's faculty adviser. In 1960, he chaired the committee that raised money to build the fraternity's current house at Wray and Lumpkin streets.
     In addition to his work with the university and fraternity, Whitehead served for 22 years on the Athens City Council, beginning in 1954.
     He was chairman of the finance committee eight times during his 22 years of service. During his tenure on the council, he served as chairman of all of the council's standing committees.
     The Jenkins Comer Whitehead Award is presented to the outstanding Chi Psi Fraternity member each school year.
     At First United Methodist Church, Whitehead served on the administrative board for 28 years, from 1954 until 1982.
     Whitehead also served on the local YMCA's board of directors for 10 years. He was treasurer of the YMCA building committee from February 1962 until the completion of the present YMCA on Hawthorne Avenue.
     John Bondurant, 92, who knew Whitehead through both his church and community work, on Friday called Whitehead ''one of the finest gentlemen I know. He was always outstanding in his accomplishments. We knew each other from college-age on.''
     Bondurant particularly remembered Whitehead's work with First United Methodist Church, and his service on the building committee.
     ''The leader's always crucial,'' Bondurant said. ''He was not the only one, but he did a great job.''
     Allan Barber, senior vice president for finance and administration at UGA, said Whitehead helped the university add computers to its offices, and modernize its business practices, across the eras of two UGA presidents.
     ''He probably was the most important link from the J.D. Bolton era to the Fred Davison era,'' Barber said.
     And, Barber added, Whitehead's work on the city council made him ''one of the most important people in the community and in the university.''

COMER WHITEHEAD A QUIET BUT EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SERVANT
     In the arena of public service, there are the flamboyant types who seek out the spotlight. Their efforts often produce more sizzle than substance. Then there are the unassuming ones who remain in the background quietly going about their business and getting things done. Comer Whitehead, a career University of Georgia administrator and longtime Athens City Council memeber, fell into the latter category.
     Mr. Whitehead, who died last Thursday at the age of 84, was a dedicated public servent, devoting 46 years of his life to his alma mater and serving 22 years on the Athens City Council. At UGA, he was a pioneer in the development of computer technology and later assumed duties as assistant to the vice president for business and finance. On the City Council, he was mayor pro tem in three administrations, chaired the powerful Finance Committee for much of his tenure and headed all of the committees of council at least once during his more than two decades at City Hall.
     A native of Athens and a product of the local school system, Comer Whitehead was one of a handful of dedicated individuals who helped bridge the gap between Athens and the university, promoting understanding and cooperation between town and gown. Not only was Mr. Whitehead effective as an official of UGA and dthe city of Athens, he was a leader in his church, First Methodist, and remained an influential force in his college fraternity, Chi Psi, throughout his life.
     Whether serving his town, the university or his church, Comer Whitehead led with a calm dignity and perseverance that served as an example for those around him. He made many lasting contributions to this community. We extend our condolences to his family and friends and share with them a sense of loss at the news of his death.1
