Emory History Minute: Hidden in the Eaves

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university. Henry Hornbostel was hired in 1915 by Emory University to design its first buildings on the Druid Hills campus. He is the reason most buildings feature red-tile roofs and pink Georgia marble.  But, the architectural feature not often seen are tablets under the eaves of several buildings describing what is studied there. To see the entire collection of Emory History Minutes, log on to Emory Report's website at http://bit.ly/emoryhistoryminutes.  And for more information about Emory's 175th Anniversary, log on to http://www.emory.edu/175.
