Carolina Quotables

“Well may university lovers rejoice over the munificent benefaction, because it will definitely put Chapel Hill on a real university basis, swelling the State income to proportions that will make many things possible, and will doubtless break a broad way for future benefactions of great moment to the State and its venerable center of education.”

-- New York Sun, on the bequest of Mary Lily Kenan Flagler Bingham establishing the Kenan Professorships, 1917
