On Oct. 1, President Jimmy Carter turned 95. While many know him as a former president, we often forget his crucial role in Atlanta history.

In 1971, Carter was elected as governor and quickly became known as a progressive leader, winning on his anti-segregation platform. Five years later, Carter became U.S. president and would go on to establish The Carter Center, with a mission to advance peace and health care worldwide.

Despite his recent health issues, Carter and his wife Rosalynn remain an active part of the community and are commonly known for their service with Habitat for Humanity.
