Collection Description

Historical Note

The Willson Center for Humanities and Arts was founded as the Humanities Center in 1987 and became known as the Center for Humanities and Arts in 1997. It was renamed the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts (after Jane and Harry Willson) in 2005. The Willson Center is a showcase for faculty innovation and achievement. Its mission is to promote research and creativity in the humanities and arts. The Willson Center supports faculty through research grants, lectures, symposia, publications, visiting scholars and artists, collaborative instruction, public conferences, exhibitions and performances.

It has the Center's newsletters (1987-2012), publicity materials (1990s-2000s) and items associated with the International Symposia Series (1994-2006). There are articles and essays authored by former director Betty Jean Craige (1984-2010) and newspaper/magazine articles, etc. from 2001 covering the 40th anniversary of UGA's desegregation. In addition, there are items related to the Delta Prize for Global Understanding (1999-2012) and a scrapbook that features photographs and documents from events at the Willson Center during the years 1987 to 1999.
