Howard H. “Bo” Callaway, a former secretary of the U.S. Army and key participant in the creation of Callaway Gardens, was hospitalized last week after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage, a Callaway representative said.
Callaway, 85, was taken Wednesday night to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after he complained of a severe headache. Determined to have had a cerebral hemorrhage, Callaway immediately underwent surgery. He’s currently in the intensive care unit, according to a statement from Callaway Gardens.
Callaway served as a U.S. representative and as secretary of the U.S. Army. He was the longtime president and CEO of Callaway Gardens, and is Chairman Emeritus of the Ida Cason Callaway Foundation.
“Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated at this time,” said Edward Callaway, chairman of the board and CEO of Callaway Gardens.
