SOURCE NOTE

The collection is on deposit from LaGrange College. Much of the material was transferred to Troup County Archives in 1987, when restoration work began on Smith Hall. The Alumni Office, housed in Smith Hall, was the unofficial repository for records and memorabilia contributed by faculty and alumni. In 1995 and 1996, additional materials, mostly from the Institutional Relations Office, were added to the collection and in 1999 materials from the Alumni Office and Banks Library at LaGrange College were added. Additional files from Qullian Building were added in 2002.

Selected items from this collection are on display in the Archives' reading room in the LaGrange College display case.

 

HISTORICAL NOTE

LaGrange Female Academy was incorporated by an act of the Georgia Legislature on December 26, 1831, though it had been in operation earlier. The school prospered with the support of prominent local trustees and under the leadership of Rev. Thomas Stanley and Major John Park. In 1846, brothers Joseph and Hugh Montgomery purchased the Academy, then located on Broad Street, and converted it to a degree-granting college named LaGrange Female Institute and later LaGrange Female College. They expanded the campus by adding buildings located on "The Hill," still the home for many College activities.

The Montgomery brothers sold the college to the Georgia Conference of the Methodist Church, South in 1857, for the sum of $40,000. Local people, mostly Methodists, contributed half the purchase money. The college operated throughout the War Between the States. During Reconstruction, it was kept open in conjunction with another local school, Southern Female College, whose campus had burned. In 1868-1869, four local women operated the college, proving its viability and convincing the Methodist Conference to keep the school open.

Rufus Wright Smith began his thirty-year presidency in 1885. He oversaw expansion of the facilities, including annexes to the "College Home" (now Smith Hall) and construction of Harriet Hawkes Hall. He also improved and expanded the curriculum and faculty. His successor, Daisy Davies, worked to have the school set up endowments. William E. Thompson (1920-1938) and Hubert T. Quillian (1938-1948) guided the college through lean years the Great Depression and World War II though the music and drama programs were expanded. The official name became LaGrange College in 1934.

Waights G. Henry, Jr. served for thirty years, 1948-1978, during which time the school became co-educational (1953), and experienced extensive building programs and institution of new programs, including nursing. During Walter Y. Murphy's administration, 1980-1996, the college doubled in size with the addition of the Callaway Campus donated by Callaway Foundation, and renewed efforts to increase the areas of Music, Art, Drama, and Business degrees. F. Stuart Gulley became president of LaGrange College in July 1996.

Irene Birdsong's thesis "History of LaGrange College 1831-- 1855", available at the LaGrange College Library, and LaGrange College 1948-1978, the Waights G. Henry, Jr. Years, by W. Malcolm Shackleford offer additional historical information on LaGrange College.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The collection offers a fascinating look at more than a century and a half of academic and cultural change in a small private college. LaGrange College's earliest records were lost in a fire that destroyed the facility on "The Hill" in March of 1860. The Collegiate Building, rebuilt in the 1870s and later named Dobbs Auditorium, burned again in 1970 destroying additional records. Information on early faculties, administrations, and student bodies is sparse. Publications of the college and accounts in local newspapers provide the bulk of nineteenth century records. Among these are catalogues beginning with 1856; however, gaps appear between dates especially in the earlier years. [Note: Other issues can be found on campus at the Library and the Alumni Office.]

Scrapbooks, artifacts, and photographs, mostly donated by alumni, compensate for the paucity of official records and provide a glimpse into the social and academic lives of LaGrange College students. Subject files collected by the Alumni Office and Institutional Relations Office are a valuable source of information on events and individuals connected with the college. The college's many publications documents curriculum and student activities. Minutes and correspondence of Alumni Association chapters and various fund raising committees reflect the on-going growth of the college. Student tracking records, c.1900 - c.1950, compiled for accreditation and curriculum improvement, provide limited information on the careers of alumnae and former students who went on to other institutions. Newspaper clippings, 1922 - 1991, collected in scrapbooks, highlight the success of students and alumni and document the expansion of both faculty and buildings. Board of Trustees and Administrative files give insight into the management practices of the college from 1844 to 1980. [Note: Additional information can be found in Oral History Interviews conducted by Troup County Archives and LaGrange Memorial Library in 2003-2004.]

 

SERIES NOTES

I SCRAPBOOKS, c.1894-c.1991

81 volumes

Memorabilia scrapbooks containing party favors, news items, and notes from classmates document student activities, especially social occasions. A few photographs appear in the scrapbooks and are of particular interest because they reflect changing styles in fashion and decorum, and also document changes in the appearance of the campus. Recital and drama playbills help formulate an idea of student participation and how the courses taught at the college were put into practice. Forty-nine volumes of news clippings, 1922 - 1991, prepared by various journalism classes and the Institutional Relations Office cover all aspects of LaGrange College. Twelve notebooks contain clippings and hand written religious treatises collected by Daisey Davies, L.C. President, 1915-1920. Most of the material in Miss Davies's notebooks post-dates her tenure at LaGrange.

II SUBJECT FILES, 1831-c.2006

2.1 linear feet

The history of LaGrange College, biography of faculty and administrators, drama, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities are among the topics included in the subject files. Special events such as Homecoming and May Day are extensively covered. Unusual items include two letters written by students, in 1853 and 1858, and a dormitory monitor's book from 1930. Also included are items donated by former students. Topics are listed alphabetically in the Container List.

III PUBLICATIONS, 1879-2008

7.5 linear feet

LaGrange College issues many publications, including literary periodicals, newspapers, newsletters, and promotional leaflets. This series contains a good, though not complete, selection of those publications. An almost complete set of yearbooks, 1914 - 2001, and catalogues, 1856 - 2004, are primary sources for verifying student enrollment and faculty service. Brochures, special events programs, and other miscellaneous publications document extracurricular activities. Also found in this series are bound volumes comprised of public addresses by Waights Henry, Jr. and his personal thoughts. (For other Bulletins & Catalogs, 1942-89, see MS-2000-02 Greene Collection)

IV STUDENT TRACKING, 1901-1953

In order to maintain accreditation and improve curriculum, LaGrange College administrators (primarily W. E. Thompson and L. A. Baily) monitored the careers of former students. These records, arranged alphabetically, document the post-graduate work of many alumnae and track a few other students who transferred from LaGrange to other institutions. These materials are available on the LC campus on microfilm.

V ALUMNI ASSOCIATION FILES, 1919-2004

1 linear foot

Minutes, treasurers' reports, correspondence, clippings, and committee reports, 1919 - 1987, document a tradition of strong alumni support for LaGrange College. An example is the 1987 publication of a cookbook, Educated Taste, a fund raising project to benefit the college. Alumnae rosters, 1857 - c.1950, are compiled from memory and are incomplete, but are still a valuable supplement to published student rosters.

VI PHOTOGRAPHS, c.1855-c.2005

6.5 linear feet and 100 framed photographs

Trends in student fashion, deportment, and extracurricular activities from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth century are revealed through the photographs in this collection. Photos are arranged according to topic. Many excellent photos of buildings record the growth of the campus. Between 1888 and 1953, individual senior portraits were reproduced in an annual composite class photo. Class photos for 1889, 1892, 1921, 1945, 1947, and 1949-1952 are missing. Candid photos taken for the yearbook, the Quadrangle, document sports, sorority and fraternity activities, and classroom and campus scenes. Numerous groups and individuals honored by the college, including beauty pageant contestants, visiting dignitaries, and class officers, posed for publicity photos. Drama Department productions from the 1950s through the 1980s received extensive photographic coverage. A World War II era snapshot album records a series of the same campus scenes at different times of year. A 1950 album by Jennie Lee Epps features photos of alumni and their families.

VII ARTIFACTS, 1861-2006

5 linear feet

Alumni have contributed a broad assortment of artifacts. While all the items have historic value, some, such as Civil War soldiers' accouterments, are not related specifically to LaGrange College. Trophies, freshman beanies, and a graduation cap and gown are among the more typical college artifacts that are periodically displayed in the Archives' reading room. Artifacts are enumerated in the Container List.

VIII WAIGHTS G. HENRY, JR. PAPERS, 1948-1986

1 linear foot

Included in this series is an extensive collection of his speeches and addresses given between 1948 and 1986. Examples of these are "A History of LaGrange College" (given in June 1981) and "Comments on Dr. Holder" (given in August 1984). Also included in these are addresses given to various organizations such as Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, various Methodist organizations, the Newcomen Society, and the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries.

Gifts & Bequest (1947-1979) contains information regarding monetary donations made to LaGrange College. Information includes name of donor, amount donated, stipulations, and date donated. This information gives insight into the individuals and corporations donating money to the college. It is also important because the material covers almost the entire period of Waights Henry's presidency, a period that saw substantial growth for the college. Investment information contains end of year reports prepared by C&S Bank from 1963 - 1972, including fiscal reports, reports on funds, and income and expense sheets.

Material relating to the Pitts Foundation (1948-1956) includes correspondence between President Waights Henry, Jr. and various members of the Pitts family.

Henry, Jr. This includes information regarding LaGrange College's initial effort to gain accreditation from the association as well as criteria information and institutional self-study reports. The Southern Association is the accrediting agency for colleges and schools in the southeast.

Vouchers for Veterans (c.1955) include correspondence and billing invoices between officials in the Veterans Administration and officials in the business office of LaGrange College. The material is of students who were veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and entitled to certain privileges in regards to tuition assistance from the U.S. Government.
