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


June 14, 1938
Gerald Ford, who would later become the 38th president of the United States, attended the first day of class at the University's first summer school session. Ford was attending Yale University's law school, but he had started a semester later than the rest of his classmates. He followed visiting professor Harry Shulman to Chapel Hill for summer law school classes, hoping to catch up with his fellow students in New Haven.
