- Professor Maddex served on the Criminal Justice faculty from 1968 until his retirement in 2000. In addition to teaching courses on the above subjects, he held several administrative positions including Assistant Dean and Executive Editor of the CriminalJustice Review. His research focused on the legal aspects of criminal justice. He authored a widely adopted textbook on constitutional law. He provided instructional and consultative services to federal, state and local agencies and the private sector, and served as an adviser to Gov. Jimmy Carter in connection with a major reorganization of the executive branch of Georgia’s government. When Prof. Maddex retired, his colleagues established a scholarship fund bearing his name from which as many as eight students per year continue to benefit. One of his favorite retirement hobbies is keeping track of the progress of his former students, and he invites updates to be sent to the email address at left.
