This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Benjamin S. Hedrick, professor of chemistry applied to agriculture and the arts, was attacked in a Raleigh newspaper for his support of Republican presidential candidate John C. Fremont. Following the incident and the subsequent controversy, the University dismissed Hedrick, making him the only faculty member to have been fired because of his political beliefs.
