Fact Book 2007 Cover A commitment to diversity is an integral part of the University of Georgia’s educational mission. As expressed in the institution’s mission statement, the university “seeks to foster the understanding of and respect for cultural differences necessary for an enlightened and educated citizenry.” The Fact Book 2007 cover honors three courageous pioneers and their contributions to diversity at the University of Georgia. In January 1961, Hamilton E. Holmes became the first African-American man admitted to the University of Georgia. He graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1963, and became the first African American admitted to the Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Holmes had an esteemed medical career, including serving as Associate Dean of the Emory University School of Medicine and culminating as the head of orthopedic surgery at Grady Memorial Hospital. He was an ardent supporter of the university and was the first AfricanAmerican member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Georgia Foundation at the time of his death in 1995. In 1999, Dr. Holmes became the first African American to have an endowed professorship at UGA established in his name. In January 1961, Charlayne Hunter (now Hunter-Gault) became the first African-American woman admitted to the University of Georgia. After graduating in 1963, Hunter-Gault went on to become an award-winning journalist, respected for her work in television and print with such major outlets as CNN, NPR and The New York Times. Among other honors, she is a two-time winner of the prestigious Peabody Award for broadcast excellence. She has returned to UGA numerous times, including serving as a commencement speaker in 1998. UGA’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication created a Distinguished Writer in Residence program in her honor. In May 1961, Mary Frances Early transferred her graduate work from the University of Michigan to UGA. On August 16, 1962, she became the first African American to graduate from the University of Georgia, earning a master’s degree in music education. Early had a lengthy and distinguished career as a music teacher and administrator in Atlanta public schools and colleges. She was the first African-American President of the Georgia Music Educators Association and received their Distinguished Educator Award. UGA’s College of Education created an endowed professorship in her name and the Graduate and Professional Scholars organization holds an annual lecture in her honor. The building depicted behind the Arch was renamed the Holmes/Hunter Academic Building on January 9, 2001, as part of the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the desegregation of the university. Holmes and Hunter walked past the historic Arch and into this building to register for classes. The courage and fortitude displayed by these students and their families paved the way for others to follow.
