Early Emory Class Photographs

Portrait of L.H. Eakes, Emory College Class of 1897The Early Emory College Class Photograph Project consists of more than 1,110 images dating from 1860-1911. The photographs document the class members of Emory College in Oxford, Georgia, founded in 1836. Prior to the start of the project, the original albumen and silver gelatin photographs were displayed in public areas of historic Seney Hall. The Oxford College campus is the original Emory College campus established in 1836 and the predecessor of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Many Emory College graduates of this period went on to play significant roles in the history of Emory University, the city of Atlanta, and the region. One such Emory College graduate is Warren Akin Candler, class of 1875, who later became the President of Emory College from 1888-1898 and the Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, from 1898-1935.
