Collection Description

Administrative History

Emory College was chartered in 1836 to the Georgia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The College was an extension of the Georgia Conference Manual Labor School, founded in 1834. To fund the College, the founders sold plots of land in Oxford, Ga.; sought subscriptions and endowments; and sold perpetual scholarships. The College struggled financially in its early years but was bolstered by significant donations by individual benefactors including George Seney, W. P. Pattillo, and Asa Griggs Candler.
