In 1930 John Motley Morehead
inadvertantly put a dunce cap on the
Louis Round Wilson Library. Some
people will even tell you that he did it
on purpose.
Morehead, along with Rufus
Lenoir Patterson, gave UNC
$100,000 to construct the
Morehead-Patterson Bell Tower.
Seen from the front steps of South
Building, the tower's conical top
seemingly fits on the library's dome
like a dunce cap on a bald head.
According to a 45 year old
campus legend, Morehead was
angered because the library, built
the year before, was named for
Wilson instead of himself.
Supposedly in reprisal, Morehead
then had the Bell Tower constructed
in its strategic location.
But Louis Round Wilson, who is
the oldest living alumnus of UNC
and resides in Chapel Hill, said,
"Certainly there was no idea of
.putting a fool's cap on top of the
library. That idea was in some
students' heads probably the same
ones that called Swain Hall 'Swine
HauV"
Wilson said that several other
sites for construction of the Bell
Tower were reviewed before the
existing one was approved.
"The first one was on top of Old
East," he said. "But they had to
repair it because it was about to fall
apart, so they decided not to build it
there."
The second suggested site was the
top of South Building. This would

have created "the dunce cap effect"
for people on the south side of the
library. Strangely enough, this
location was proposed by
Morehead.
Morehead also wanted South
Building to be renamed "The
Morehead Building." "The trustees
and alumni smoked that idea,"
Wilson said. "They didn't want to
change the name because it had
traditionally been called South
Building and 'Old Main."'
Morehead then proposed that the
tower be built on the top of Wilson
Library. "I opposed that," Wilson
said.
The existing site was the next one
that was suggested. "The trustees
told Morehead," Wilson said, "that
the spot would someday be in the
middle of the campus buildings since
they were planning to build on the
south part of the campus. Morehead
thought it sounded like a good idea,
so they built it there."
When Wilson was asked if there
was even a speck of truth in the Bell
Tower legend, he said, "It wasn't
designed for that purpose at all."
He then added, "But it does look
that way like a fool's cap."
