UNC’s Dialectic and Philanthropic Society Presents The Annual Kemp Plummer Battle Lecture

If you’re interested in finding out more about Carolina this University Day, consider attending the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies’ annual Kemp Plummer Battle lecture.

Governor James E. Holshouser, Jr., will deliver the lecture at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, October 12, in the Hanes Art Center auditorium. The lecture will focus on University history and traditions. A reception will follow the lecture.

Holshouser’s victory in November 1972 marked the first election of a Republican governor in North Carolina in the 20th century. The Watauga County native served in office from 1973 to 1977. He currently serves as member emeritus of UNC’s Board of Governors.

Isaac Warshauer, the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies’ Joint Senate Historian, will also lead a guided tour of the University at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 12. The tour will begin in front of South Building on the Polk Place side and will last roughly an hour.

For more information and to RSVP to the lecture, visit the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies’ website.
