Alumnus to sign autobiography
Emory Law alumnus Marvin Arrington ’67L will sign copies of his book April 28 at 4:30 p.m. at the Miller-Ward Alumni House.

Arrington’s autobiography, “Making My Mark: The Story of a Man Who Wouldn’t Stay in His Place,” has just been published by Mercer University Press.

A Fulton County Superior Court judge since 2002, Arrington also served several decades as a trustee of Emory.

The native Atlantan tells the story of his determination to escape the confines of economic adversity through academic and professional success.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the signing.

Doc’s bag opened for children
Neil Shulman, associate professor of general medicine, will perform in a show that shows kids “What’s in a Doctor’s Bag?” on April 26, in 208 White Hall at 1 p.m.

Shulman will teach children about Otis the Otoscope, Lubba Dubba the Stethoscope and other costumed versions of instruments. The audience will also learn about shots — why they’re given and how they work.
Every child at the free show will receive a certificate for completing the “medical school.” Coloring books and activity sheets that complement the show can be accessed at www.whatsinadoctorsbag.com.
