Who is Dooley?
James W. Dooley safeguards the official Spirit of Emory.
Borrowing his first name and middle initial from the current university president, Dooley takes the form of a biology lab skeleton wearing a cape, top hat and gloves. He makes appearances at annual campus events such as President Carter's town hall for first-year students as well as during a week in his honor in the spring.
The Dooley tradition dates from the 1800s.
