Edwin A. Alderman"Our first duty is to enable the students to catch the spirit of the great masters of thought; our next is to the people, to aid in developing our resources. We owe a duty too to our women, and should open our postgraduate courses to them."

-- Edwin Anderson Alderman, President of the University of North Carolina, 1897
