Collection Description

Administrative History

The establishment of graduate education at Emory coincided with the 1919 move of the main Emory College campus from Oxford, Georgia to Druid Hills, Georgia and the founding of Emory University. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences first offered master of arts and master of science degrees only. The school awarded its first PhD in 1948. Theodore Jack served as first dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in addition to dean of the undergraduate College of Arts and Sciences. In 2009, the school was renamed for past Emory University president, James T. Laney, becoming the Laney Graduate School.
