Carolina Photographs from the First State University


Carolina Photographs from the First State University by Erica Eisdorfer

Like a leisurely stroll along the oak-shaded paths of campus, this vibrant collection of photographs captures the heart and soul of the community that is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From move in day to graduation, two hundred images trace a year in the life of Carolina students, faculty, and staff, at work and at play, in the campus environment that has helped make Chapel Hill the southern part of heaven. A foreword by beloved professor and novelist Doris Betts muses on her own experiences of the University as a compelling place at the literal and figurative heart of the state. The photographs are accompanied by captions that reveal the history and lore of notable campus places, the rituals and traditions of University life, and the wisdom and appreciation of those who have passed through the nation's first state university. Academics, arts, politics, clubs, and athletics - these pages are filled with the memory-making moments of life at Carolina, evoking the timeless present recognizable to Tar Heels young and old. This is everyone's Carolina, to treasure and to share.
