Collection Description

Biographical Note

The Southern Dental College was established in 1887 as a part of the Southern Medical College. When Atlanta Medical College and Southern Medical College merged to form the Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1898, the college continued as a department of the new school. The Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons itself merged with the Atlanta School of Medicine in 1913, forming the second Atlanta Medical College, with the dental school once again included as a department. When the Atlanta Medical College became the School of Medicine of Emory University in 1917, Southern Dental College became independent. It later merged with Atlanta Dental College in 1918 to form the Atlanta-Southern Dental College.

Scope and Content Note

The records of the Southern Dental College consist of announcement issues (1903-1905 and 1914-1917), two annual reports (1915 and 1916), historical information, commencement invitations and class lists, and memorabilia. The annual reports document the school’s rejected offer to sell their facility to Emory University.
