Support Our Work: The Dr. David B. Gracy II Endowment
To honor the legacy of Dr. David B. Gracy II and the founding of Special Collections and Archives, we recently established the Dr. David B. Gracy II Graduate Research Assistantship for Special Collections and Archives.
With your support, this endowment will fund one graduate student to create innovative new ways of promoting the importance of archives throughout the Atlanta community.

50 Treasures for 50 Years
To celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary, our archivists pulled 50 “treasures” from our collections to highlight. We chose items that were unique and quirky with great stories to accompany them. If you have questions about any of these items we would love to hear from you at [email protected].
Georgia Women’s Movement Spring Event: Leveling the Playing Field
The Georgia Women’s Movement Spring Event is held annually to celebrate and highlight materials in the Women’s Collections at Georgia State University. The 2021 event focused on the history of women’s sports in Georgia and at Georgia State University. Speakers include Anne Harper, Jaray Mazique and Kelsey Roegiers.
The Importance of Archives in Communities
We could not have a public opening, but we’re delighted to share this recent conversation with six of our donors and community partners.
We asked our panelists about the importance of the archives, and the conversation touches on several interesting questions. Why are immigrant stories important? What happens to the accounts of those whose lives were cut short by AIDS? And how do we document rural-Georgia women activists that the national and urban media ignored?
What our panelists had to say moved us, and we are grateful for their time and thoughtfulness. We hope you, too, will appreciate the vital work that our partners do in and around Atlanta.
