  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    According to the donor Carroll Webber, the Pitt/Greenville Chapter was very active during the 1970s and 1980s. Its presidents included Charles Cain, Jean Lowry, Carroll Webber, and William Byrd. Cases that needed legal action were referred to the North Carolina Civil Liberties Union in Raleigh, N.C. In 1998, the chapter was closed in order not to divide effort and energy between the chapter and the newly created chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
