The Jack Boozer Fund and the Hermann and Janet Noether Funds are now accepting applications for summer and fall 2010. Monies from these funds are designed to allow Emory University students to participate in internships and service-learning programs in social ethics and community service.
The Jack Boozer Fund honors a beloved and distinguished Emory colleague, Jack Boozer (1918-1989). The Charles Howard Candler Professor of Religion, Boozer taught at Emory for 36 years and was the recipient of numerous teaching awards.

It is rarely pleasant to look at the feet of the great, for they are too often made of clay. And so it is with Martin Luther King, Jr. On the evidence, there can be little doubt that he plagiarized his Ph.D. dissertation at Boston University from an earlier one by a man, now deceased, named Jack Boozer. Pappas compares eight or more passages from Boozer's thesis with passages from King's in which the ideas and phrasing are virtually identical. He also cites several passages in which King and Boozer make almost identical mistakes in citation or punctuation. King plagiarized much else as well: Pappas identifies five plagiarized passages from King's pre-dissertation period, as well as from the final section of his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, whose passage "From every mountain let freedom ring . . ." was first spoken by another black preacher, Archibald Carey, at the 1956 Republican National Convention.
