Abstract: This absorbing chronicle of the history of the Daily Tar Heel, the student newspaper of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, captures the cultural, social, political, and historical events that influenced the campus from the newspaper’s start in 1893 as a publication of the Athletic Association through its next 100 years, with an epilogue that briefly brings the story to contemporary times. Zogry, a public historian with two published books on Vermont furniture and the history of the Carolina Inn, presents a striking look at how the Daily Tar Heel reported news and had an impact not simply on campus but also reached out to alumni, the state, and even the nation through its articles and editorials.
