College History
     The school’s history is traced to 1881, when two Boston women, Sophia Packard and Harriet Giles, began teaching a small group of African American women, mostly ex-slaves, in an Atlanta church basement. Two years later the school moved to the site of Fort McPherson, which had been a Union training site during the American Civil War. Donations from industrialist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, beginning in 1884, assured the school’s security and growth in its early decades. The school was named Spelman Seminary for Rockefeller’s wife’s mother. It began awarding college degrees in 1901 and became Spelman College in 1924. In 1929 an agreement between Spelman College, Morehouse College (for African American men), and Atlanta University formed what would become the Atlanta University Center, which consists of Spelman and five other African American institutions in Atlanta sharing students, faculty, facilities, and curricula. Notable alumnae include lawyer and civil-rights activist Marian Wright Edelman, musician and historian Bernice Johnson Reagon, and writer Alice Walker.
