Collection Description

Administrative History

The Robert T. Jones, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1976 in honor of Emory School of Law alumnus and successful amateur golfer, Bobby Jones. The Fund provides full scholarships to Emory students to study at the University of St. Andrews in St. Andrews, Scotland for one year.

Scope and Content Note

Collection contains correspondence and printed material from Francis M. Bird, former legal partner of Bobby Jones and Emory trustee who was involved with the establishment and administration of the Memorial Scholarship Fund, including a transcript and address from the 1986 Emory University commencement exercises by J. Steven Watson, former Principal of the University of St. Andrews. Additional materials, including the clippings, promotional items, photographs, and correspondence and memoranda, seem to have originated with Thomas Fernandez, former Vice-President for Student and Academic Services.
