Biographical/Historical Note

Hailing from Macon, Georgia, Emory Brown Rumble graduated from Georgia Tech in 1926 with a B. S. in Mechanical Engineering. His extracurricular activities included participating in the Y. M. C. A., WGST Radio Station, and the Marionettes, a student theater group. He also was a cheerleader for athletic events.

Scope and Content Note

Because Emory Rumble was involved with many campus organizations as a student, he had the opportunity to collect event programs, accumulating programs from the Marionettes, Georgia Tech Glee Club, and football programs. The 1929 Commencement program is bound in a leather cover, although this is not Rumble's graduating class. The newspaper clippings pertain to the Georgia Tech football team.
