John Hope; Undated

Description

Dr. John Hope served as the 4th president and first African American president of Morehouse College. Serving for 25 years (1906-1930), Hope is credited with expanding the college and contributing greatly to the present day shape of the institution through expansion of curriculum and attracting talented faculty and administrators. It was during his administration that the college initiated what would be their last name change—Morehouse College. In 1929, Hope was unanimously chosen to lead the newly affiliated university system comprised of Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Atlanta University.
