History of Gulledge
Gulledge Elementary opened in 1995 and was named for South Carolina-born merchant Joseph Harold Gulledge (1857-1943), whose family moved to Texas after the Civil War. From 1882-95, he and a partner operated a dry goods store in Plano; Gulledge continued the business independently until 1918. He also traded in cotton and grain, helped organize the Plano Compress Company and was president of the Plano National Bank 1921-31.
