  1. According to a campus map in Our growing university : U.N.C. at Chapel Hill, 1959 (Cp378 UD65), the answers are:

    1. What is the grassy area between Stacy, Everett, Lewis, Graham, and Aycock Dormitories called? Morehead Court

    2. How about the grassy area between Ruffin, Mangum, Manly, and Grimes Dormitories? King Court

    3. How about the grassy area between Manning, Murphey, and Saunders Halls? McRae Court

  2. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to have a little plate at the edge of these campus spaces stating the name of the area:

    1) McCorckle Place. Named for Samuel Eusebius McCorkle . . .
    2)Polk Place. Named for James K. Polk, president of the United States
    3) King Court. Named for William Rufus King, vice president of the United States
    4) Morehead Court. Named for John Motley Morehead, Governor of North

  3. Maybe William Rufus DeVane King’s memory will have better luck in Chapel Hill than it did in Seattle. The Sampson County native was the original “King” in Seattle’s King County (and the since-imploded Kingdome). In 1986, however, the King County Council voted to rename the county for Martin Luther King Jr. Noted the council member who proposed the change: “We won’t have to reprint stationery or change road signs or anything like that.”
