"Dear Old U-G-A" captures the personalities and flavor of campus life at the University of Georgia from 1893 to the present. Reports from The Red and Black student newspaper trace the colorful history of student organizations, reveal origins of campus traditions, chronicle the overcoming of resistance to coeducation and desegregation, describe evolution of student fashions and behavior, reflect on joys and occasional disappointments of UGA athletic teams, capture town-and-gown relationships with Athens -- and much more. "There have been many histories of Athens and the University, but 'Dear Old U-G-A'. . .may be the best when it comes to color, feeling and personality," Loran Smith, UGA historian and popular representative of the university, said. "You get an insight into who we are and how we have become who we are. . . This is a history anyone with a love of alma mater and feelings for Dear Old U-G-A won't want to be without." The 8.5x11" coffee-table book's 31 chapters and 384 pages are illustrated by more than 200 historic images and contain the names of more than 2,000 students and former students. An appendix lists names and dates of the 22 chief executives who have led the university, the school's 23 Rhodes Scholars and all editors and business managers of The Red and Black since the newspaper's founding in 1893.
