University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


November 13, 1926
William Rand Kenan Jr. announced a gift of $275,000 for the construction of Kenan Memorial Stadium. The initial pledge was not enough, however, and further funding was needed. Kenan gave the stadium in honor of his parents, William Rand and Mary Hargrave Kenan.
