George Whitney Calhoun (1890–1963) was a sports and telegraph editor for the Press-Gazette of Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA. A native of Green Bay, Calhoun was a co-founder of the Green Bay Packers with Curly Lambeau, and was the team's first publicity director.[1]

Calhoun wrote The Dope Sheet, which served as the Packers' official press release and game program from 1921 to 1924. Honoring Calhoun, the Packers have revived The Dope Sheet as a downloadable game preview sheet on Packers.com. Calhoun served as PR director until Lambeau fired him in 1949. In 1963, he died at the age of 73.
