Plummer

Kemp

Battle.

The General Assembly

of North Carolina, having heard with great sorrow


death of Dr. Kemp Plummer Battle, Professor Emeritus of History
and former President of the University of North Carolina, who died at his
home in Chapel Hill on the fourth day of February, 1919, is desirous of expressing its sense of loss which is thus brought to the University and to the
of the

State.

Whereas, for almost three-quarters of a century the life of our State has
been enriched by the example of his unselfish devotion to duty as educator,
statesman, and public official, and
Whereas, after the blighting effects of the Civil War, the State University
was reopened and revitalized largely through his efforts, and under his
leadership as president the foundations were laid for growth and expansion to its present large and useful place in the life of our people, and
Whereas, as teacher, author, and public speaker, Dr. Battle has rendered
invaluable service in the promotion of historical research and the preser-

vation of the historical records of our State, and as a citizen he has exemhighest ideals of a cultured gentleman, and has, in all of his
relations with his fellow-man, displayed the true type of a Christian:
Now, therefore, be it resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representativesconcurring:
That in the death of Dr. Battle the University and the State of North
Carolina have lost a public servant whose career marked him as a teacher
with a genius for inspiring his students, as an adviser of sound judgment, as
a friend of sympathetic nature and of wide and splendid ideals of public
service, whose long and useful life has been devoted unselfishly to the promotion of education, moral uplift, and all things that are helpful in the
betterment of our people; whose life has been an inspiration to the younger
generations that have come under his influence, and whose career should
forever be a shining example to those who shall come hereafter.
Resolved -further, that this resolution be spread upon the Journal of the
Senate and the House of Representatives as a testimony of the high esteem
in which the people of North Carolina held Dr. Battle as a man and their
confidence in him as a public servant, and their admiration of his splendid
