UNC Head Basketball Coach Roy Williams announced his retirement today after eighteen years at the helm. Williams can be found inside many Hugh Morton photographs, twenty-five of which can be seen in the online collection.

Williams has not been a focal point of a blog post here on A View to Hugh, but  his name appears in a dozen or so posts. If you would like to revisit any of those posts, simply enter his name in the search box and see if any of the results looks like interesting reading to you.

I’ll be working in Wilson Library next week, so I will look to see what I can assemble for a fitting blog post. In the meantime, please explore the online collection and A View to Hugh for glimpses into the stellar career of Roy Williams.
