Administrative History

Dan Bailey begins his paper describing the “three Oglethorpe Universities” that were seen throughout history. Briefly, he discussed the reasons why the first two did not thrive. Afterwards, he went on to criticize decisions made by Dr. Thornwell Jacobs involving his desire for a medical program, in an effort to welcome praise for the arrival of Dr. Philip Weltner as President of Oglethorpe University.
