University Archives Research Guides

Emory University History

The Emory University Archives is charged by the university with collecting, preserving and providing access to records and related materials documenting the history and function of Emory University, its predecessor schools, and related organizations. This research guide lists and provides links to the finding aids for the most significant and largest collections. It does not offer a complete list. It serves as a preliminary research tool, providing a brief description of the collections.

Naming Honors Research Guide 

Names on Emory University's campuses reflect the institution’s history. Appointed in 2020, the University Committee on Naming Honors reviewed new historic and contested historic names associated with buildings, spaces, programs, scholarships, and other honors named for individuals in Emory’s history. This guide provides a number of resources on the life and times of select individuals that help to contextualize the university’s recent examination of its named spaces and programs.
