Carolina Quotables


“As I saw Franklin Street in 1912, it was a dusty red avenue cut through a forest of magnificent trees….My first impression of Chapel Hill was trees; my last impression is trees….It is no wonder that Chapel Hillians are ardent tree worshippers and the symbol of the place is Davie Poplar.”

-- Robert B. House, Chancellor of the University of North Carolina from 1945-1957, in 1964
