Scope and Content Note

The series contains materials relating to meetings held by the Board of Trustees, subject files on matters taken up by the Board, and general correspondence detailing the Board's relationship with Emory University as a whole. The series is primarily correspondence, with some printed material included in particular correspondence files for personal reference. Notable contents include the Board's correspondence on public controversies, including the integration of the University in 1962, the Thomas Altizer affair (better known as the "God is Dead" scandal), and protests on the Emory campus. Likewise, the Board's goals for the growth of the University can be seen in files on capital development, general meeting files and files on University presidents. Correspondence describing potential or actual employees and donors have been removed and restricted in accordance with the Emory University Archives Access Policy for university records.
