History of the University of Georgia by Thomas Walter Reed
Author: Reed, Thomas Walter, 1870-1950.
Imprint: Athens, Georgia : University of Georgia, ca. 1949

From 1885 to 1950, Thomas Walter Reed was an eyewitness to much of the University of Georgiaís history, as well as one of the best-loved members of the campus community. Retiring as Registrar in 1945, he began to draft a monumental history of the University. As Reed presented his typescript draft to the University in 1948 he noted, "It is not such as I would call anything like a finished piece of work, but it may do some good to file it away." Even without revisions, Reedís history has long been a favorite of researchers in the Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Georgia Main Library.
