Abstract

"Shall the Circle Be Not Broken: A History of the Circle Park Community" was written by Andrew C. Wicks for Dr. Bruce Wheeler's Knoxville History course at the University of Tennessee during spring quarter of 1985. The collection also features photocopies of maps of Circle Park as well as Dr. Wheeler's notes about the paper.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Circle Park neighborhood was home to many of Knoxville's richest and most prominent citizens during the early part of the 20th century. The area began to decline in the 1940s, and the University of Tennessee bought most of the neighborhood in the 1950s. Between 1960 and 1968, the University razed the original structures to make way for such buildings as the Andy Holt Tower and the McClung Museum, many of which are still in use.

Andrew C. Wicks wrote this chronology of a progressive Knoxville community while studying at the University of Tennessee. He graduated in 1986 and was a Rhodes Scholar finalist.
