This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The Board of Trustees adopted bylaws, which were written by Samuel Eusebius McCorkle, a Presbyterian minister and educator from Rowan County, for the new University.
Hinton James arrived on the newly opened campus of the University. According to legend, James walked from his home in New Hanover County (now Pender County), becoming the first student to enroll at the first public university in the country. The southernmost dormitory on campus was named in his honor.
