UNC grad Anne R. Keene discusses pro baseball at UNC during World War II in new book

AK: It took years. I was able to find some old thesis papers, but the mothership is at Wilson Library. This gentleman by the name of Kidd Brewer was the pre-flight base publicist. He was a colorful personality, and because of that when he handled publicity for the base, he went to extra lengths to have it captured on film and print. There were hundreds of magnificent pictures, documents and memos that my grandfather had written. I had a good fortune of working with a literary agent by the name o

Impact of Gerard's record-breaking round for UNC men's golf has yet to settle in

In the third round, Gerard’s mind was far from the record he was about to break — he didn’t even know what it was. His mind was on that moment, standing on the green, focusing on his next shot. “I was focused on trying to help the team as much as I could,” Gerard said. “I figured I had something special going on, but I was really trying to keep myself in the moment and take things one shot at a time. I know from past experience once you start thinking in the future, that’s when stuff starts to

Two days prior against the Bulls, he played 23 minutes and scored a season high of 12 points — all on 3-pointers. He is averag
