"What we learned at Chapel Hill was not chemistry and economics
and mathematics. Those were the instruments of learning. We learned,
we absorbed, with Frank Porter Graham as our master teacher, that
solid tradition, those hopes of this university born of the beginnings
of a new nation, values this great university continues to nourish
-- freedom and liberty and tolerance, the search for truth, the defense
of dignity, courage to arrive freely at convictions, and the personal
courage to stand for those hopes and truths."
-- Terry Sanford,
Governor and U.S. Senator, in his University Day Address, October
