Recounts the first visit of the delegation from Elizabeth City in their effort to secure the school.
A Delegation from Elizabeth City Here in the Interest of a State Normal
School in That City.
A delegation of citizens from Elizabeth City are here in the interest of a
State Normal School for the metropolis of Eastern North Carolina. These
gentlemen were appointed by the Chamber of Commerce or Elizabeth City.
They are enthusiastic in their appeals for a school at this point, and
claim that since the State has established such schools in Caldwell
andJackson counties, in the west, it is but just to the east that a school
be established there.
Edenton and Washington, it is understood, are also asking for such a
school, with plausible inducements.
Those who compose the delegation from Elizabeth City are: Messrs. S. L.
Sheep, W. M. Hinton, J. Heyward Sawyer, M. N. Sawyer, H. C. Tunis, T. B.
Wilson, E. F. Aydlett, Roscoe W. Turner, H. T. Greenleaf, J. H. White and
Reve. A. P. Tyre.
