Remembering former UNC President William Friday, who passed away this morning at the age of 92. He was a strong supporter of arts, culture and heritage in North Carolina. He served for many years on the Roanoke Island Historical Association Board (the organization that produces The Lost Colony), and was the first chair of the N.C. Museum of History Foundation Board. He was awarded a North Carolina Award for Public Service in 1975.
The photos in the slideshow below come from the State Archives and depict Friday over time between 1956 and 1983:
