The idea for an eastern normal school came up first in
Wilson in 1901 in a bill which was rejected. It developed into a contest between 9 towns and finally resulted
in the successful bid of Greenville and Pitt County in 1907. Close to the 100th Anniversary of the school
now, the following exhibit will walk with you in the footsteps of faculty, students and supporters through the
founding and first graduation and continue on through the years of its development.
Users can return to any of these groupings from any part of the exhibit.
You can find thousands of additional documents about the history of East Carolina University digitized at the University Archives website.
