Emory is an Atlanta neighborhood with a rich and colorful past and a bright and promising future.
You may recall from an earlier post that The Methodist Episcopal Church founded Emory College in 1836 in Oxford Georgia. The founders named the town for the school’s prestigious British cousin, and named the school for a bishop who dreamed of an American education that molded character as well as the mind.
The little school struggled for decades, and finally began to prosper in the late 1800s. By 1914, the Methodist Church was looking to create a university in the South, and Emory College was looking to expand. Into this situation stepped Asa Candler, Atlanta pharmacist and founder of the Coca Cola company. Candler wrote the now famous “Million Dollar Letter,”provided much needed financial assistance, and the endowment of the land…in Druid Hills for the purpose of creating Emory University. So the college moved its campus and the rest, of course, is history.
Today Emory is a leading university in the South. It is internationally recognized as an outstanding liberal arts college and its graduate and professional schools attract the best and brightest from around the globe. Cindy Breeden, (wife of Tom Breeden) is one of those mentioned above. She matriculated through Barnard College in New York as a pre-med student, and has enjoyed a vital and enriching career at Emory as an organ transplant researcher at one of the leading health care systems in the Southeast. Emory enjoys annual endowments of 500 million dollars to fuel its medical research programs.
