Collection Description

Administrative History

The Portrait Committee was established at Emory University in the early 1980s to survey portraits owned, commissioned, or housed at Emory University. David Estes, former Head of Special Collections in the Woodruff Library, served on the committee and assembled the bulk of this collection. Later documents related to the management of portraits on the Emory campus were added to the files by Ginger Cain, former Emory University Archivist.

Scope and Content Note

The collection includes subject files related to portraits owned, commissioned, or housed by Emory University.

Arrangement Note

Primarily organized by the campus buildings wherein the portraits are stored or displayed.
