THE FLYING PETREL 
PROUDLY SPOTLIGHTS 
ELAINE TRAER LAW '66 



The Flying Petrel takes this opportunity to express apprecia- 
tion to 1969-70 Alumni Association President, Elaine Traer 
Law, '66. Elaine's contribution to Oglethorpe College dur- 
ing this most important year has been far beyond the call 
of duty. She has been instrumental in moving Oglethorpe's 
Alumni Association forward in keeping with the progress 
of the entire Oglethorpe community. 

Elaine has made the following major projects possible dur- 
ing this year: 

A pocket calendar for all alumni, a summer vacation ar- 
ranged especially for Oglethorpe's alumni, a very success- 
ful alumni dinner and basketball game festivity, and an 
outstanding Alumni Day program. She has been invalu- 
able in the Alumni Fund Raising campaign to Renovate 
Lowry Hall. She is still determined to reach the $20,000 
goal and continues to make contacts to make this goal a 
reality. 

Elaine Law has been a busy lady during this year, working 
for her alma mater. Her loyalty, dedication, hard work 
and determination are one of the reasons why Oglethorpe 
College is achieving stature. 

Elaine, on behalf of the alumni association, THANK YOU.

SIDNEY LANIER MEMORIAL 
CLASSROOM DEDICATION 

The Formal Dedication of the Sidney Lanier Memorial Class- 
room was held May 18th. The Rotary Club of Buckhead re- 
furbished this Oglethorpe Classroom in which literature 
speech, writing, and English will be taught. 

in 1860, Lanier graduated from Oglethorpe with first 
honors at the age of eighteen. During the last days of his 
life, Mr. Lanier stated that he owed to his Oglethorpe Pro- 
fessor James Woodrow (uncle to Woodrow Wilson and 
first Ph.D. in Georgia) "The strongest and most valuable 
stimulus of his youth."* Lanier's own desk used when he 
was a student at Oglethorpe will be ensconced behind 
glass in one portion of the room. A brass plate over the 
door of the Sidney Lanier Room reveals an inscription pro- 
claiming the participation of the Buckhead Rotary Club in 
decorating the room. Buckhead Rotarians and friends of 
the College were invited for a firsthand view of the project 
results on May 18th.
