  Creator:   Coulter, E. Merton (Ellis Merton), 1890-1981  
  Dates:   1865, 1976  
The collection consists of a memoir of Alonzo Church, D. D. (1793-1862) minister and former president of the University of Georgia, was written by William L. Mitchell for Reverend John S. Wilson and the Presbyterian Synod of Georgia on 20 September 1865, as part of the Synod's project "to prepare a memorial record of each one of the ministerial members who have departed this life since the erection of the Synod." Included in this collection is a Xerox of an early typescript of the original, a recent typescript, copy of a cover letter to Dr. E. M. Coulter, and note from Dr. Coulter pertaining to the memoir. This memoir, although somewhat fragmentary, is an important record of the life of Alonzo Church, his university policies and administration, and, by inference, Athens during the antebellum period.
