Samuel R. Williamson, dean of the College of Arts
and Sciences and the General College has been
appointed University provost, head of the University's
Division of Academic Affairs.
The UNC Board of Governors approved Willliam
son Friday as the replacement for Charles Morrow,
provost for the past 15 years. Morrow resigned his
post to return to full-time teaching and research.
As provost, Williamson said he hoped to help the
University continue implementing its newly restruc
tured undergraduate curriculum. In addition, he said
he planned to help the operation of the University's
library and computer facilities.
Williamson will assume his new position once the
University finds a replacement for his current job.
The Division of Academic Affairs includes the
College of Arts and Sciences, the General College,
the six professional schools, the University library,
Ackland Art Museum, the Computation Center, the
Meuiit and instructional support Center, and the
Since his appointment as dean in 1977, Williamson
has supported the restructuring of the undergraduate
curriculum. He gave special attention to fund raising
for the College of Arts and Sciences and to introducing
computer-assisted instruction at the University.
Previously a history professor, Williamson was the
first director of the University's curriculum in peace,
war and defense. He specializes in strategic and
Before coming to Chapel Hill in 1972, Williamson
was a faculty member at Harvard University and
assistant to the dean of Harvard College. He also
taught at the J.F. Kennedy School of Government.
Williamson received his bachelor's degree in history
in 1958 from Tulane University and studied at the
University of Edinburgh as a Fulbright scholar. He
earned his master's degree and his doctorate from
Hot Air Balloon Race in Kinston.
Balloonmeister is the most presti
gious position in a hot-air balloon race.
As Meddock explained, "My ultimate
responsibilities are the safety of the
event and the fairness of the contest."
He was definitely kept busy in Kinston,
when the early stages of Hurricane

Poor weather conditions forced Med
dock to allow only two of the five

balloonists of all experience levels could

Hunt urged to let Bar field die
RALEIGH Gov. Jim Hunt "has
no choice" but to let stand Velma
Barfield's Nov. 2 execution date,
families of Barfield's poisoning victims
"If he (Hunt) goes by the merits of
the case, he really has no choice," said
Alice T. Storms, whose father was
among those killed. Our trip to Raleigh "
today is one that should not be neces
sary. No victims of violent crime should
have to persuade anyone to enforce the
law, much less to bring letters to
persuade the highest official in the state
to uphold the law."
Following a press conference at the
Capitol with about a dozen supporters,
Storms said she would give Hunt 2,000
signed letters seeking Barfield's execu
tion. Hunt has promised a quick
decision after meetings today and
tomorrow with supporters and oppo
nents of clemency.
Barfield's attorney petitioned Hunt
for clemency on Saturday.
Barfield's supporters have recently
mounted a campaign to portray her as
a woman whose drug addiction led to
the poisonings, said Kim Norton,
Barfield's 21-year-old daughter.
But Storms said yesterday that
Barfield was "an accomplished liar to
the point of taking advantage of every
social issue" to get clemency.
