Letter, Richard Adler to Frank Porter Graham
Carolina Magazine and freedom of expression
Adler writes to President Graham to solicit his support for Carolina Magazine, in light of a bill presented by some UNC students to the Student Legislature to cease its publication during World War II. “This group feels that creative expression is trivial during the crisis and that all effort should be devoted to ‘practical’ war aid,” he writes of the bill’s sponsors. Carolina Magazine continued to be published until 1948, making it one of the longest continuous UNC student publications, with a 104 year run.
