“When I came here twenty-five years ago, there was no theater program, no creative writing program, no dance program, no film program, a modest music education program, a chorus and a community symphony orchestra. There were no academic courses in theater and the facilities were appalling—Callaway basement was constantly flooding out. I was brought in to lead the theater program as a catalyst for all the other arts programs.”
—Theater Emory founder and Winship Professor James Flannery
