Collection Description

Administrative History

Emory University's Office of the Treasurer was responsible for financial matters at the University. In addition to producing annual budgetary reports, the Treasurer also advised the University community on energy consumption during labor and resource crises, such as a coal workers' strike in 1946. George H. Mew served as the first Treasurer of the University. In the early 1960s, Ewell Bessent succeeded Mew. Bessend occupied the office of Vice President for Finance and Treasurer until 1972 when Hugh Hilliard assumed the office. The duties and functions formerly associated with the Office of the Treasurer have since been assumed by the Business and Administration Division of Emory University.
