Abstract:

Opens with various exterior shots (si.) of the Ogelthorpe University campus (ca. 2 min.), followed by shots of the honorees and others taking their places on stage (ca. 1 min.) and the glee club performing the Alma Mater hymn (ca. 1 min.). Jacob Thornwell presents honorary degrees to benefactor Martha Berry, founder and president of the Berry Schools, Mrs. Sidney Lanier, founder and president of the Lanier Camps for American youth, and aviator Amelia Earhart. Earhart states that she is deeply grateful for the honor, but cannot feel she fully deserves it; if the degree is being bestowed because of her achievements in aviation, she feels the honor should be shared with her plane, which deserves the green pastures of aviation and is "at this moment" being rehabilitated for an old age of passenger carrying, "a prosaic old age I hope," of normal flying, which record flying is not (end of roll 1). Next recipient is Ga. Archivist Ruth Blair, who notes that in recognizing the work of women, the university honors the example of Georgia's founder James E. Oglethorpe, who recognized the contributions of "halfbreed interpreter and guide" Mary Musgrove. Subsequent recipients are Florence Sabin, "supreme authority on human anatomy," astronomer Annie Cannon, and Caroline Miller, "historian of the humble beginnings of Georgia, defender of the dignity and the duty of poverty and fame, literary exponent of spiritualized realism." Miller recites a 2,000-year-old poem by an anonymous Chinese author. Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Josephine Roche, founder of the Foreign Language Information Service, receives the next award, and expresses an appreciation for the South. Finally degrees are presented to Helen Reid, vice president of the New York Herald Tribune, and Congresswoman Caroline O'Day, who contrasts the honors bestowed with the sexist statements of Lord Chesterfield and John Knox.
