Edward Kimbrough Turner was one of the few faculty who moved with Emory College from Oxford, GA, to a new campus in Atlanta. A vigorous and esteemed teacher, he was the senior member of the faculty when he retired. He continued to teach after retirement during the war years. He wrote almost nothing of a scholarly nature; his chief interest was in original Latin compositions.
