"Chapel Hill makes no pretense of being cosmopolitan.
It strives rather for an enlightened provincialism. It is primarily
concerned with Southerners and the South, and it seeks to equip men
to lead useful lives in a backward empire now slowly moving into what
may become the most astonishing renaissance ever seen on American soil."
