More than just a history of a state university, this two-volume work by a former president of the University of North Carolina places the school in a broad setting, giving attention to state and national events and their effect on the University. The author follows the careers of University graduates who became leading political figures, jurists, clergymen, cabinet members, ambassadors, educators, historians, scientists, and writers. Beyond the expected subject matter, these volumes supplement the general North Carolina state histories.
