Regarding The Medical College of Georgia. The Medical College moved to this site in 1913, not 1911. The class of 1912 was the last class to complete its education in the building at Telfair and Sixth streets. The class of 1913 started its senior year at the Old Medical College but transferred to the newly renovated Tuttle-Newton home on January 2, 1913. Later this building became known as the Newton Building and served as the administration building until the Kelly Building was completed in 1954.
