Portraits of Leadership: Photographs of Emory Presidents on Display

Who was Emory's youngest president? Which president had the longest tenure? Who was president of both Emory and Georgia Tech? How many presidents also have held the position of Chancellor? Who was the first Emory graduate to serve as president of Emory?

These and many other questions can be answered in a small exhibit on view in Special Collections and Archives on Level 10 of the Woodruff Library through the end of May. The exhibit features reproductions of photographs of the nineteen presidents of Emory College and Emory University from Ignatius Alphonso Few to James Warren Wagner, and also includes inauguration programs and invitations beginning in 1942 when the first formal inauguration was held for President Goodrich Cook White.

Windows on the Future: Inauguration in Church and Academy

Inaugurations mark important milestones in institutional histories and often forecast the road ahead for mission, research, and service priorities.  To celebrate the inauguration of President James Wagner's tenure at Emory University, the Pitts Theology Library has drawn on its collection of several hundred ephemera that document such occasions from across the spectrum of academic and religious institutions over the last 300 years.  These will be on display in the Durham Reading Room of the Pitts Theology Library from March 29 through April 3, 2004. 

Open to the public, free admission.

Atlanta Dogwood Festival

An Atlanta tradition, the non-profit Atlanta Dogwood Festival provides an annual springtime celebration of arts and entertainment in Piedmont Park. The festival features an artist market, canine competition, musical performances, and food.  For information visit Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
