The Permanent Committee on Memorials was formed in 1931 for the purpose of establishing memorials to past Presidents and Chancellors as well as outstanding faculty members and alumni of the University of Georgia. The committee consisted of the following individuals:

Dr. Phinizy Calhoun, Sr.-Chairman

Judge William H. Barrett

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of one Hollinger box of almost entirely correspondence (arranged alphabetically by last name of writer or addressee) dating from the early 1930's. Since the committee would often solicit help from the relatives of the individuals to be honored, most of the letters concern this subject, especially in regard to the donation or commissioning of portraits. There are also letters from the committee members to Dr. Calhoun, in which various business matters are discussed. Other items in these papers include printed material, lists, reports, two photographs, and other miscellany. See the collection guide for additional information.


Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by last name of writer or addressee.
