Robert T. Jones, Jr. Program

Bobby Jones at Emory

World-renowned golfer Robert “Bobby” T. Jones, Jr. 29L was an extraordinary man of compassion and integrity who valued education as much as he loved golf. An alumnus of Emory University School of Law, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Harvard University, he created a legacy of academic excellence and leadership. The Emory Libraries house Jones’ papers—making Emory the center of Jones scholarship and research—and the Jones Program at Emory comprises three signature divisions honoring his legacy.
