Collection Description

Historical Note

The Westerminster Fellowship, later known as the Presbyterian Student Center, was established in 1940 as the Presbyterian student ministry at the University of Georgia.

In 2011, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of desegration at the University of Georgia, approximately 50 alumni, friends, relatives and staff gathered at the Presbyterian Student Center for "a day of reunion and reflection."

Scope and Content

The collection consists of biographical files that document the alumni of the Westminster Fellowship at the University of Georgia. These alumni attended the University in the early 1960s and compiled biographical information around 2011. Two of the longer writings are "Confession of a Hoosier Christian Part II: The Georgia Years" by William W. Rogers and "A Supporting Role: A Students' Recollections of Desegregation at the University of Georgia" by Joan Zitzelman.
