Series 1
Atlanta Campus and Properties, 1927-1993
Boxes 1-18

Scope and Content Note

The Atlanta Campus and Properties series, 1927-1993, includes materials related to most major buildings on the Atlanta campus of Emory University. These records include correspondence, contracts, and other legal agreements related to the design and construction of buildings on the main campus after 1947, similar materials related to the renovation of earlier buildings, and records of the operations and facilities management at the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry prior to their relocation to the Druid Hills campus from downtown Atlanta. Property surveys, plats, site plans, and architectural renderings are associated with many buildings in the series. The collection is particularly rich in materials related to student housing developments and medical treatment and research facilities. While the materials are largely concerned with buildings, properties, maintenance, and the operations of auxiliary enterprises, the breadth of the collection may make it of interest to researchers concerned with the institutional culture across Emory’s various departments and schools. Also included in the collection are programs, orders of service, and memoranda regarding dedication ceremonies for several buildings, including extensive materials on the1979 dedication of Cannon Chapel, attended by President Carter. Records from the Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center include papers related to the sale facilities at Orange Park, FL, and their operations prior to the research center’s relocation to Atlanta in 1965.
