Formal photographic portrait of President McKinley. S. Justus McKinley graduated from Franklin and Marshall College and earned his AM and PhD degrees from Harvard. He was recruited by Emerson College in 1934 to head the History and Social Sciences Department. In 1946, he left Emerson for a professorship at Springfield College, citing differences of opinion with the administration of Boylston Green. After a nearly three-year period of turmoil following Green’s resignation, which included two failed interim presidencies, S. Justus McKinley was asked to return to Emerson to become its next president. McKinley returned to Emerson at a time when the College was in financial crisis and on the brink of collapse. Student morale was terrible and plagiarism was rampant. To combat these problems, he boosted student morale by attending every student production and making himself more visible and available to the student body. He also stressed the importance of academics over social clubs and extracurricular activities. He created two new departments, Broadcasting and Speech Therapy, both outgrowths of the Speech Department. In 1953, the College created the Samuel D. Robbins Speech Clinic in honor of the Emerson faculty member who started the Speech Department in 1935. That same year, the Broadcasting Department began offering courses in television production, and in 1954 the College built a state-of-the-art television studio. McKinley embarked on several successful fundraising campaigns throughout his term in office, which allowed the College to become financially stable and purchase several buildings. In 1965, Emerson acquired the Deertrees Theatre in Harrison, Maine, which served as a summer theater for Emerson students as well as students from other institutions.

Securitas security officer Namyr Celestine being presented with a certificate of commendation for thwarting an attempt by two non-Emerson individuals to improperly gain access to a College building. The incident occurred on the morning of April 19 when a man in his thirties and a woman in her late twenties wearing Emerson sweatshirts tried to enter 25 Boylston Place. Celestine thought they looked suspicious so she stopped them and asked to see their ID cards, whereupon the two individuals left the building. The certificate and a check were presented to Celestine (shown holding her daughter Jamir) by Israel Rivera (right), the Securitas account manager for Emerson, and George Noonan (holding certificate), director of public safety for the college. Joining them is deputy chief Scott Bornstein (left).
