Use our searchable index to find specific Emory Magazine articles from 1995 to 2000.






































For eight years, Emory Magazine has chronicled the University’s arcana in its “Enigma” column. From long-forgotten traditions such as pushball, to Emory icons such as the Haygood-Hopkins Gate, to our own haunted house, “Enigma” has explained the unexplained.

For the first time, we have collected our Enigma files, from the merely murky to the mysterious, in one place.

Discover how Emory obtained the medical instruments used to autopsy Napolean Bonaparte. Learn the secret behind The Wave. Find out which Emory landmark Flannery O’Connor incorporated into one of her short stories.

It’s all here, in “The Enigma Files.”

Enter. If you dare.
