Pitts Theology Library

Candler School of Theology, Emory University

Pitts Theology Library, one of Emory University’s six instructional libraries, holds a distinguished collection of theological materials. With over 620,000 volumes, the library provides unusually rich resources for the Candler School of Theology and Emory University and has attracted international attention for some of its collections.

The growth of the library is due in part to the interest of a good friend of the Candler School of Theology, the late Miss Margaret A. Pitts of Waverly Hall, Georgia. Beginning in 1973, she made substantial gifts for new acquisitions, and in 1974 the library was named in honor of Miss Pitts and her father, W. I. H. Pitts.
