Early film of campus - Around the Arch
December 2008 Issue
As part of the home movie project sponsored by The Walter J. Brown Media Archives, the earliest known film of the UGA campus was discovered. The footage was shot at Harold Hirsch Hall (School of Law) around the time of its dedication in 1932. Harold Hirsch (UGA Class of 1901) was general counsel for Coca-Cola for many years, famous for defending the trademark unique shape of the cola’s bottle. Hirsch was friends with Bill Kaliska, a Coca-Cola sales and marketing executive who had friends in Athens; on a visit to town, he shot this footage. To view the footage and find out about the home movie project visit http://www.libs.uga.edu/media/collections/ugarelated/hirschhall.html.
