About this title


The notion that the stateliest of oaks germinates from an altogether miniscule acorn has special meaning for the community of Oxford, Georgia, whether used literally to describe the “Prince of the Forest” or metaphorically depict large and long serving families or the birth of a great university. Emory College was rooted in the soils of Oxford for 80 years, growing in fits and starts until 1919, when, with relative suddenness, it was transplanted to Atlanta. In the wake of that move, the community shrank from a Methodist stronghold to an institutional afterthought. Yet, both the community and the campus endured and thrived again, as both old and new families put down fresh roots and engendered a deep sense of place, fellowship, service, and celebration.

About the Author:

Oxford native and historian Erik Blackburn Oliver has interviewed numerous longtime residents, consulted the works of previous Oxford and Emory historians and chroniclers, pored over thousands of photographs in public and private collections, and plumbed census records to piece together this testimonial collage in tribute to his beloved hometown on the eve of its 175th anniversary.
