“THE LEADING BANK IN THUS SECTION”
To Duke Library
Durham, Aug. 12. —Two interesting
publications by Wade H. Harris editor
of The Charlotte Observer, have been
donated by the author to Duke univer
sity and will be permanently pre
served in the university library.
The first, entitled “My School Days”
presents a vivid picture of the author’s
early education in North Carolina
following the Civil War. Memories of
his boyhood constitute an unusual re
cord of conditions in the South at
the time, as well as a literary work
of extraordinary merit. Mr. Harris
takes occasion in the book to pay a
sincere tribute to the outstanding edu
cators of the period, including Gen
eral James H. Lane and B. Frank
In the second work given a place in
the Duke library, Mr. Harris’ letters
to his own paper, written during a
tour of Europe in 1927 are collected
under the title, “The Editor Abroad.”
The North Carolina editor traveled
with a party of 30 American editors
through nine European countries.
These editors were selected from va
rious sections of the United States
by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, pres
ident of the Carnegie Foundation for
International Peace, for the purpose
of making personal observations of
conditions and prospects in Europe.
Mr. Harris’ keen observations and in
teresting comments make the pamp
hlet no tonly highly interesting read
