Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

The Photographs collection of Candler School of Theology contains materials dating from 1915 to 2003, which have been divided into four series: Buildings, Community Life, Events, and People.

The Buildings series contains undated photographs of Avery Hall, Bishop’s Hall, Cannon Chapel, Durham Chapel, Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church, Pitts Theology Library, Turner Village, and general photos of the Emory campus. The Cannon Chapel materials include photographs of the construction process as well as the completed building.

The Community Life series contains photographs of Candler School Theology students, faculty, and staff dating from 1928 to the early 2000s. This includes photographs that are not from a formal Candler School of Theology event, but show members of the Candler community participating in activities on and off campus. At the end of the series there are unidentified photographs grouped according to approximate decade.

The Events series contains photographs from official Candler School of Theology events dating from 1915 to 2003. This includes annual events such as commencement, Minister’s Week, and meetings of the Committee of 100 as well as other one-time events, such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium.

The People series contains photographs of Candler School of Theology students, faculty, and staff. Some of the photographs are those taken for the School of Theology Student Directory or similar publications, while others are professional headshots or personal photographs that were sent to the School of Theology. At the end of the series there are unidentified photographs grouped according to approximate decade.

Arrangement Note

Organized into four series: (1) Buildings, (2) Community Life, (3) Events, and (4) People.
