Haygood-Hopkins Memorial Gateway
Campus: Druid Hills in Atlanta
Date: Construction in 1937
Purpose: Primary campus entrance gate
The Haygood-Hopkins Memorial Gateway was gift of Linton B. Robeson (1886C), an educational publisher who served for many years as president of the alumni association and as a trustee.
The structure honors two Emory College presidents of the 19th century:
- Atticus Greene Haygood, who served as president from 1875 to 1884
- Isaac Stiles Hopkins, who served from 1884 to 1888
The Emory College classmates both became Methodist ministers and played important roles in education after their Emory presidencies: Haygood as agent of the Slater Fund directing philanthropy to new colleges for African Americans, and Hopkins as the founding president of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
