This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


January 27, 1897
The University inducted Edwin Anderson Alderman into the office of university president. Originally scheduled for October 12, 1896, the ceremony was delayed due to the heated political campaigns of that year. Alderman served from 1896 to 1900, leaving to become president of Tulane University.
