expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Darley Hiden Ramsey, son of Simeon Clay and Lucy (Pinckard) Ramsey, was born in Gretna, Va., in 1891. In 1903, his family moved to Asheville, N.C., to the same neighborhood as Thomas Wolfe. Ramsey received two degrees from the University of Virginia, an A.B. (1912) and an M.A. (1913) in economics. He also pursued a year of doctoral studies as Supply Professor of Economics.

In 1915, Ramsey was elected Commissioner of Public Safety of Asheville and served a year in the same capacity in Winston-Salem after his term expired in 1919. In 1920, he joined the Asheville press as associate editor of the Citizen, and was successively editor of the Asheville Times, 1921-1926; general manager of the Times, 1926-1930; and general manager of the Citizen-Times Company, 1930-1954.

Ramsey was actively connected with public education during most of his career. He served as chairman of the board of trustees of Western Carolina College; a member of the State Board of Education, 1945-1953; and on the first Board of Higher Education, 1955-1960. Among other civic posts he held were president of the North Carolina Conference for Social Service, 1923-1924; chairman of the State Planning Board, 1944-1945; president of the North Carolina Press Association and director of the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association; chairman of the Buncombe County Sinking Fund Commission, the clean-up operation in the wake of the Asheville-Buncombe County financial default; treasurer of the School of Journalism Foundation of North Carolina, 1949-1953; director of the North Carolina Forestry Association; and director of the James G. K. McClure Education and Development Fund (Farmers Federation Fund), which engaged in health, educational, and religious philanthropies in Western North Carolina.

Ramsey was often urged by his correspondents and by editors in the state press to become a candidate for governor. He never sought public office after 1919, but was influential in the state Democratic Party through keynote addresses, writing party platforms, and campaigning for governors. He was a presidential elector in 1940 and 1960.

Ramsey was much in demand as a speaker for commencements, elections campaigns, radio broadcasts, memorials, dedications, and other civic occasions. Besides editorials, he frequently wrote magazine articles on journalism, education, conservation, Western North Carolina history, and other topics.

Ramsey married Mary Sumner in 1926. He was made Doctor of Laws by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Doctor of Letters by Western Carolina College.
