The Contract of Affiliation [of Atlanta University System]; 1 April 1929

Title

The Contract of Affiliation [of Atlanta University System]; 1 April 1929

Description

The Contract of Affiliation was an agreement between presidents Myron Adams (Atlanta University), John Hope (Morehouse College), and Florence Read (Spelman College), formally establishing the affiliation of the three institutions. Spelman and Morehouse Colleges were to serve as institutions of higher learning for undergraduate students while Atlanta University would serve graduate students. The Atlanta University Affiliation marked a milestone among Historically Black Colleges and Universities and was a trailblazing effort for cooperative agreements among American colleges. While the blueprint of the Affiliation cannot be attributed to any single person, John Hope’s vision played a major role in its formulation and success.
