Biographical and Historical Note

Wake Forest University's Alumni Office, now the Office of Alumni Engagement, manages alumni relations and development of the alumni program. Eugene Olive, a Wake Forest College (1910) and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (1918) graduate, served as Director of Public Relations and Alumni Affairs (1947-1955) and then Director of Alumni Activities (1955-1961).

Collection Overview

These records document the work of the Alumni Office. Materials in this collection include campaign letters, meeting minutes, correspondences, reports, memorandums, press releases, publications, and pamphlets. The Alumni and Communications Office duties were formerly broader than they are at present, so the records reflect that. Much of the correspondence is from Eugene Olive.
