UNC Celebrates Its
150th Anniversary
University of North Carolina alum
ni of this section were interested
this week in the celebration held in
the iState Capitol in Raleigh, of the
150th anniversary of the opening of
the institution in 1795.
The ceremonies were held ii the
Hall of the House of Representatives
Monday night, January 15, at 8
o'clock, with Lieut.-Gov. L. Y. 3al
lentine, president pro-tem of the
Senate, and Representative Oscar
Richardson, Speaker of the House,
presiding jointly. Members of the
General Assembly and as many
guests as could be accommodated
were present.
The principal speakers were Gov
ernor R. Gregg Cherry, President
Clarence K. Dykstra of the Univer
sity of Wisconsin, and President
Frank P. Graham of the University
of North Carolina.
Victor S. Bryant of Durham,
chairman of the Legislative Com
mission on the Sesquicentennial,
gave a brief address on the signific
ance of the occasion, and Dean of
Administration Robert B. House of
the University at Chapel Hill, intro
duced President Dykstra.
Pointing out that the University
of North Carolina was the first
State university in the nation to open
its doors to students, Governor
Cherry, President Dykstra and
President Graham stressed the point
that the University is truly a child
of v the American Revolution, for it
was conceived in the year of Inde
pendence and born with the founding
of the Republic (1789).
Up to that time, they said, educa
tion had been for the privileged few.
Almost every commonwealth has
followed North Carolina's example
with a State University and these in
stitutions have been one of the na
tion's most powerful forces in trans
lating into action the concept of de
mocracy enunciated in the Declara
tion of 1776.
