Biographical/Historical Note

Omicron Delta Kappa is a national leadership honor society. The Georgia Tech chapter was founded in 1939 to bring student, faculty, and administrative leaders together. The oral history project devised by ODK was in cooperation with the public relations and history departments. They interviewed alumni regarding curriculum, activites, significant events, and traditions. The information gathered was the basis for updating current publications concerning Georgia Tech traditions and history.

Scope and Content Note

The interviews conducted by ODK include some famous Georgia citizens, including President Jimmy Carter, Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr., and Georgia Tech legend George Griffin. The interviews with Carter and three others do not have corresponding transcripts.
