Biographical Note

Henry Milton Quillian (1892-1972) was a professor of law at Emory University for forty years, retiring in 1961. In 1908, he was a self-described fifteen-year-old "Sub-Freshman" from Athens, Ga. attending Emory College in Oxford, Ga. After graduating Emory College in 1913, he served as principal or science department head of several Atlanta area high schools. He then attended Harvard Law School prior to returning to Atlanta in 1921 to join the faculty of what was then known as the Lamar School of Law.

Quillian, identifying Edward George Mackay as the Emory College student responsible for naming Dooley in 1909, and describing Mackay's authorship of anonymous student writing attributed to Dooley in The Emory Phoenix.
