"He Had a Hammer: The Legacy of Hank Aaron in Baseball and American Culture"
Opening event Thurs April 24 at 7 pm. An assortment of original Hank Aaron materials from Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) will be featured in a small exhibit on the baseball legend. Materials on display, drawn from several collections, will include Aaron’s scouting reports, telegrams between the Braves and Aaron’s Negro League team, and a sample of the hate mail Aaron received as he closed in on Babe Ruth’s home run record, which he broke with his 715th home run in 1974. Curated by Emory University juniors Kyle Arbuckle, Warren Kember and Brett Lake, members of Emory’s baseball team. Hours will vary for Sundays, holidays and summer; check  http://bit.ly/emory-lib-hrs before you go.
