I have ten large trunks of Chapel Hill memories that include more than 30,000 photographs, scores of videos that I have shot or collected since 1959, and dozens of journals that detail my life in Chapel Hill from 1949 to 1990. Included in these journals are hundreds of entries about conversations I had with a variety of Chapel Hill residents. Many of the conversations revolve around their recollections of life in Chapel Hill long before I was born. Some of their memories go back as far as 1886. In addition to this I have a two terabyte hard drives containing digital photos and other items related to the town and university during the last 125 years.

What is it that binds us to this place as to no other? It is not the well or the bell or the stone walls. or the crisp October nights. No, our love for this place is based upon the fact that it is as it was meant to be, The University of the People.
