The Genesis of the Quadicentennial

Record #:
H. G. Jones recounts the efforts of various individuals and organizations over the years to commemorate the anniversaries of the Roanoke Colony founding. Directing the committee planning the quadricentennial to be held in 1984, Jones left in 1974 to work on James B. Hunt’s campaign for governor. His goal was to have jurisdiction of the Roanoke Fort Raleigh site returned to a commission rather than the political appointees of the previous administration.
