Abstract:
Robert Lee Humber successfully lobbied $1,000,000 from the North Carolina legislature in 1947. Humber had obtained a promise from the Kress Foundation in New York that they would match the legislature up to $1,000,000 in purchasing art. Humber lobbied legislatures into passing a bill that stipulated that if money was left over at the end of the year that money would be used for matching the Kress Foundation. The funds were matched and the North Carolina Museum of Art now exists because of Humber's efforts. Article is reprinted from the January 12, 1957 issue.

Abstract:
The Constitution of North Carolina was written in 1868 while the state was still under military rule following the Civil War. Many feel it should be rewritten because of its many archaic provisions. Attempts were made in 1933 and 1959 to modernize the document, but both failed. Interestingly, the man who is called the \"father of the N.C. Constitution\" was Albion W. Tourgee, a colorful carpetbagger.
