About Longstreet-Means Hall

Students participating in Global Cultures will be living in Longstreet-Means Hall. Longstreet-Means is named after two past presidents of Emory: Augustus Baldwin Longstreet and Alexander Means.

Augustus Baldwin Longstreet presided over Emory College from 1839-1848.  He was a minister, judge, and journalist.

Alexander Means, though president for only one year (1854-1855), was one of the earliest professors at Emory College.  Means stepped down as president in 1855 to teach chemistry at the Atlanta Medical College (now Emory University School of Medicine).  Prior to his appointment as president, Means was the superintendent of the labor school that preceded Oxford College.
