“This is a great institution with a great tradition and with devoted
alumni, and with the support of the people of this State. Its establishment
and continued functioning, like that of all great Universities, has
required great sacrifice by the people of North Carolina.”
-- President John
F. Kennedy at University Day, October 12, 1961
