Hugh Crawford, an associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Media, and Communication, was recently quoted in an article entitled “Tech Pays Tribute to Fallen Willow Oak That Dates to Late 1800s” for Saporta Report.

Here's an excerpt:

Associate Professor Hugh Crawford shifted his plan for the students’ big project for the semester. The subject matter for the class was unchanged – the role of trees in American culture, and the ongoing “recalibration of human’s relationship with the natural world.”

But the project shifted from building a play structure for a local school to memorializing a tree that had been part of Tech’s institutional memory since about the time the school opened in October 1888 with a class of 84 students.

The School of Literature, Media, and Communication is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
