Exhibit - Documenting Change at Wake Forest: Dr. Edwin Wilson’s Papers

Dr. Edwin Graves Wilson had a long and distinguished administrative career at Wake Forest. His positions included: Assistant Dean, Undergraduate College; Acting Dean of the College; Dean of the College; Provost (First) (1967-1990); Vice President for Special Projects; and Senior Vice President. Under his leadership, a Faculty Committee voted to end segregation, Wake Forest established its residential study abroad programs in London and Venice, and established the Wake Forest Press. He also represented Wake Forest on numerous national organizations, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), where he also served as president.


This exhibit will focus on the significant changes witnessed by Dr. Wilson during his many administrative positions. Selected documents will illustrate historical events such as integration, the creation of the study abroad programs, the establishment of the Wake Forest Press, an increasing growth of athletic programs, collection purchases for ZSR Library, among others.
