Emory History Minute: Pushball

 

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university.  From 1923-1955, Pushball was a tradition on campus battled out between the freshmen and sophomores. It was played with a 180 pound leather ball and 25 people per team on the field with the goal to push the ball into the other team's end zone. It was banned in 1955 because it caused too many injuries. Pushball was brought back for one day only as part of Emory's 175th anniversary celebration. To see the entire collection of Emory History Minutes, log on to Emory Report's website at http://bit.ly/emoryhistoryminutes.

Emory History Minute: Candler Mansion

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university. 

The Candler Mansion on Emory's Briarcliff campus is a beautiful yet eerie estate. Built in 1920 by Asa "Buddy" Candler, Jr., the second son of the founder of Coca-Cola, the 42 acre property once housed wild animals including four elephants: Coca, Cola, Refreshing and Delicious. In the 1960s, the mansion was turned into a mental health institute.
