Abstract:
Cox Trailers, in Grifton, is well-known in the eastern United States. Leon O. Cox and his sons started the company before the turn of the century, and they built bean and tobacco harvesters, tobacco trucks, and farm wagons. Later boat trailers were added. It was the Cox Camper, added in 1963, that made the company a household word in the recreation field.

Abstract:
By 1973's dog days of summer, the Coastal Plains Regional Commission had realized its short term goal for Wheeler Airlines. It was a connection between Morehead City (offering seasonal peaks of business) to Greenville (promising the greater likelihood of year around brisk business). As for its long term goal, that was to extend this aerial connection to Elizabeth City, Jacksonville, and Washington. From this, the hope was to resolve even more effectively the long recognized aerial transport issue for Eastern NC.

Abstract:
The profile for this famous son of Wilson County, recently elected as lieutenant governor, highlighted several areas of his life, primarily those involved with his political career. One was personal (delegate work for the National Grange Youth Conference led to meeting his wife). Another was professional (original career goal: taking over the family’s dairy farm). The last was civic (introduction to public service: college director for the Democratic National Committee).

Abstract:
Wooles’ companion piece to “The Possible Dream” echoed many of the same assertions contained in Moore’s article. However, there were two distinctive features in Wooles’ article. One was defining what a medical school is. The other was how it prepares medical students for the profession in term of knowledge and clinical training.

Abstract:
Columbus County’s Hotline employees listened to and offered solutions for a myriad of issues, from crisis level to everyday. The director, labeling the service as “reflective listening,” revealed the qualification process involved 30 plus hours of community college training courses. From their service’s quality, can be inferred the employees, mostly volunteer, live up to this statement by Carl Rogers: “Listening, rightly done, is the most important thing you can do for a person.”

Abstract:
Grifton’s population grew four fold from 1950-1960, with Kinston’s DuPont plant as the recognized factor. In the shadow of an industrial giant, a family owned business can be easily invisible. An exception was Cox’s Trailers. Location was an obvious factor, but offering quality service and products played just as much a role in its local popularity the past four decades.

Abstract:
The possible dream, as noted by Dr. Moore and supported by ECU’s President Jenkins, was the creation of a medical school at East Carolina University. Their goal was to supply a medical school that would adequately meet the needs of North Carolinians, particularly those residing in Eastern NC. How it would do so was by equipping its doctors to provide care comparable to the care offered by doctors graduating from the other medical schools in the state.
