This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Isaac William Rand, a freshman from Smithfield, died in an early morning hazing incident. After falling from a barrel and cutting his jugular vein on a broken bottle, he quickly bled to death. Four sophomores were dismissed from the University for the episode, and they were later arrested by Orange County officials. After the trial, one was acquitted of any wrongdoing and three were found guilty of manslaughter. For more information on this incident, see Materials pertaining to the hazing death of Isaac William Rand, 1912, (Call number: FVC378 US11) at the North Carolina Collection.
