Title:Omer Clyde Aderhold papers

Omer Clyde "O.C" Aderhold (1899-1969) was president of the University of Georgia from 1950 to 1967. The collection documents the administrative business of the University of Georgia during O.C. Aderhold's tenure as president. Materials of particular interest are those documenting the desegregation of the university in January 1961 when Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Hamilton Holmes became the first two African American students to attend UGA. These files include administrative correspondence as well as letters from the public expressing support or opposition to desegregation.
