Emory History Minute: Church School Amphitheater

 

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university.   The Church School Amphitheater was the site of Emory Commencement for nearly 20 years in the 1940s and 1950s.  This was also the site of Emory's first televised event, the 1949 graduation ceremony featuring the vice president of the United States Alben W. Barkley as keynote speaker.   To see the entire collection of Emory History Minutes, visit Emory Report's website at http://bit.ly/emoryhistoryminutes.  And for more information about Emory's 175th Anniversary, visit http://www.emory.edu/175.
