George C. Griffin Photograph Collection


George C. Griffin Photograph Collection


George C. Griffin was Dean of Students at the Georgia Institute of Technology from 1946 until his retirement in 1964. He maintained a lifelong interest in Georgia Tech, from his undergraduate days (1914-18; 1920-22) until his death in 1990.

Dean Griffin was often called "Mr. Georgia Tech" because of his dedication to the school and its students. He established and managed an emergency loan fund to assist students with financial difficulties, and he started, with his own funds, Georgia Tech's Central Placement Office. After his retirement, he operated a job placement service for alumni over forty.

Dean Griffin was a virtual repository of Georgia Tech history. His love of Tech is evident in this photo collection and in the papers and memorabilia he donated to the Georgia Tech Archives.

The George Griffin Photograph Collection consists of over 900 photographs relating to all aspects of Georgia Tech and its history, including students, faculty, administrators, alumni, sports, and buildings. The photographs range in date from ca. 1885-1987 (bulk 1891-1972) and offer a unique perspective on the people and places from Georgia Tech's past.

This digital collection includes most--but not all--images from the Griffin Photograph Collection. Researchers wishing to view the complete Photograph Collection may visit the Archives and request to see VAC002.
