Collection Description

Historical Note

The Grady College is one of the oldest and most distinguished communication programs in the country. The three departments, journalism, advertising and public relations, and telecommunications, are consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Henry W. Grady, the "Voice of the New South," was born in Athens, Georgia on May 24, 1850 and died in Atlanta, Georgia on December 23, 1889. Shortly after his move to Atlanta, Mr. Grady formed a partnership with Col. Robert Alliston in the founding of the Atlanta Herald newspaper. After the Atlanta Herald folded, Henry Grady accepted a position on the editorial staff of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. It was the combination of Henry W. Grady's alumni status, his editorial position and his Athens birth, which motivated the renaming of the Journalism school at the University of Georgia.
