Abstract:
Carved from Carrara marble in Rome in 1859 by Louisa Lander of Salem, Massachusetts, the idealized statue of Virginia Dare has traveled far to its current resting spot on Roanoke Island. The statue was salvaged from a shipwreck while en route to Boston, barely survived a museum fire after its restoration, and was defiled during its time displayed at the Supreme Court. Thankfully, in 1955 the Garden Clubs of North Carolina built the Elizabethan Garden on Roanoke Island, displaying the statue proudly in an honored position.

Abstract:
November of next year will mark the 100th year since the birth of Charles B. Aycock; and if all goes well, it will mark the opening of a new and historic attraction for North Carolinians in the form of his restored birthplace. The architect's drawings of the restored house of North Carolina's great educational governor bring the restoration one step closer to completion. Funds for this project were provided by the General assembly and by a public subscription drive.

Abstract:
Although many were convinced sport fishing in North Carolina was futile, others persisted, encouraging a growing number of charter boatmen. By 1946, there were approximately 20 cruisers designated for offshore fishing working out of North Carolina ports. Their persistence paid off in 1953 when 13 blue marlin were caught in Hatteras waters.
