History In 3-D
Raleigh, Early NC Are
Period Room Subjects
By Ken Sanford
A visit to the period rooms of the Library's North Carolina Collec
tion is a history lesson in three dimensions. No amount of reading
will produce the same effect as a visit to a historical reproduction of
a scene from the past.
The Sir Walter Raleigh Room was reproduced in part and furnished
with materials taken from f me
English homes of the time in
which Raleigh lived. The room
contains books that have been
written by and about Sir Walter
Raleigh. The room is paneled in
original Jacobean oak paneling of
the late Tudor period, perhaps
near 1590. The furniture is of the
Three carved statues of old
English oak stand at one end of
the room. The center statue is a
larger than life-size likeness of
Raleigh. It was brought from
England to New York for sale.
There Col. Owen Kenan of Wil
mington bought it and sent it to
the University Library. One of the
smaller figures on either side of
the larger one is of Raleigh and
the other is of Queen Elizabeth.
They came recently from Preston
Davie in New York, a great-friend
cf the Library and a lateral de
scendant of WTilliam R. Davie,
founder of the University.
The other period room is from
an early North Carolina colonial
house. It is a restoration of the
Lane House which stood on Little
River in Nixonton before 1750.
The doors, woodwork and flooring
are original material taken form
that house. All of the other ma
terial was taken from houses of
the 1750 period either in North
Carolina or Virginia.
The room contains furniture and
household utensils that were to be
found in , the average home oL the
colonial period. At the .fireplace
are a low stool, a black iron dutch
oven, a candle mold and a fireside
toaster with its short legs and long
In one corner stands a walnut
corner case with doors which con
tain handmade glass panes. It con
tains books that were found in
the libraries of the better homes
of that day.
A grandfather clock and a spin
ning wheel are also from that pe
rinci Pine Daneline frames the
tiny windows and low doors.
In the atmosphere that these
two rooms create, one can easily
imagine himself transported in
time back to the time of Raleigh
and Elizabeth or to the pre -Revolutionary
War days in North Carolina.

He told board members that the
bids made by the Wilkins Co. were
"considerably higher than we
thought they should be" and added
that several of the bids ran over
$1,000 with one bid going as high
as "$1,400 and some odd dollars."
Thirty-five fraternity and soror-
ny nouses were condemned m
January for failing to provide fire
escapes on houses where occupants
sleep on second or third floor.
They were given 90 days to rem
edy the situation. The 90-day pe
riod ended on April 5.
Two weeks ago, the town board
issued a statement notifying fra
ternities and sororities that they
must complete arrangements for
the construction of adequtae fire
escapes by June 5, or the town
will take "all available steps to
prevent their further use as a
dormitory after June 10." Accord
ing to the resolution, the dormi
tory space in" the houses will be
closed unless they are "equipped
or under contract for proper
equipment" by the June 5 dead
line. "I don't think any fraternity or
sorority is trying to avoid this
thing," Rousseau continued. "They
are just trying to get competitive
bids." He said that A. S. Newsome,
another contractor, had made bids
recently and that some of the new
bids were lower than Wilkins had
Rousseau assured the board, "If
the other houses get bids, I see no
reason why they won't be signed
by June 5."
