Chapters of the Society of Southern Dames have been established around the country, with three in Florida alone. Last June, at age ninety-one, Mrs. Jolley left her home in Pine Mountain, Georgia, and attended the national meeting of the society in Atlanta. She looks forward, she says, to this year's gathering in Texas.
According to Mrs. Jolley, her pride in her son still lies at the heart of her pride in the University. Upon completing a neurosurgery residency at Emory in 1954, Fleming Jolley began a private practice in Atlanta as one of only eight neurosurgeons in the city. After two years in private practice, he joined the Emory Clinic. His $2 million gift to Oxford College last year supported the renovation of several buildings now collectively known as the Jolley Residential Center.
