In honor of the groundbreaking on July 2, 1908 for the first six buildings at East Carolina Teachers Training School, a pageant "East Carolina's Spade," was written by Emma L. Hooper of the English Department and directed by Dr. Kenneth N. Cuthbert of the Music Department. The pageant produced in 1958 documented the history of East Carolina University, beginning with the groundbreaking ceremony held by ex-governor Jarvis. The play consists of four episodes that chronicle future developments and had an entirely local cast made up of descendants of those at the original groundbreaking.
