Series 1
Office of LGBT Life records, 1981-2012
Boxes 1-5

Scope and Content Note

The series contains the records of the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender life. The bulk of the series is comprised by a chronological file of articles and correspondence on Emory and Atlanta LGBT history created by the Office itself on the occassion of its 20th anniversary. These files include material on a 1992 harassment incident that provoked wide protests and galvanized the LGBT community on campus. Other notable contents include files on the national controversy known as the “Oxford Affair,” in which President Chace and the Board of Trustees came into conflict over whether same-sex couples could use Emory facilities to hold commitment ceremonies.
