George Washington Macon (born February 3, 1861 in Talladega; died September 10, 1931 in Anniston) was a professor of physics and chemistry at Howard College in the 1880s. He is also credited as a co-writer of the school's Alma Mater.
Macon was the son of Simon and Fannie Stone Macon. In addition to his years at Howard, he taught at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia and at Tift College in Forsythe, Georgia. After the death of his first wife, Harriet, Macon remarried, to Luna James.
In 1976, Macon's former student Roy L. Smart established the George Macon Memorial Award at Samford University. It is given annually to "a faculty member who through outstanding performance as a teacher, as a counselor, and as a friend to students demonstrates the ability to inspire students to greatness."
