Summary

Since the 1789 charter of the country's first state university, Chapel Hill has attracted people from all over who found that the village was the perfect place to put down roots. In this collection, local newspaper columnist Valarie Schwartz celebrates many of Chapel Hill's most notable residents, from the World War II veteran who came to law school after the war and ended up as president of the UNC system for thirty years to the couple from the Midwest who arrived in 1935 and spent their careers building the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra. Featuring stories of struggle and success from all walks of life, "Remembering Chapel Hill" is a tribute to the twentieth-century citizens who made the town what it is today: 'the Southern part of heaven.'
