"Vote for Charles Kuralt," Campaign
Daily Tar Heel editors ran for election to
their posts. This poster is from Charles Kuralt's successful campaign
in 1954. In March of the following year the student legislature investigated
the paper, responding to accusations that Kuralt used the Daily
Tar Heel to impose his liberal viewpoints on students. After
graduation from UNC, he went on to become a news correspondent for
CBS, and was best known for his long-running television series "On
the Road."Other notable Daily Tar Heel editors include
writer Jonathan Yardley and journalist Edwin Yoder.
