In the sphere of education, North Carolina is perhaps the most progressive state of the South. To carry out its extensive program, it has a well equipped system of primary and secondary schools, many junior and senior colleges and a large State University.
Campbell College, one of its well known junior colleges, stands as a monument to a man who dared to "lose his life" in the service of youth. He gave of his time, talent, and money to the building of an institution where poor boys and girls might receive an education. The spirit of Dr. J.A. Campbell lives on in the in the lives of hundreds of men and women who studied under his guidance; it lingers in the atmosphere of the campus to inspire and challenge students who yearly enter there.
The purpose of this paper is to "follow in the steps of a great man;" to show the growth and progress of an institution; and to delineate the college as it exists today.
