History of the Department
In 1990, Carl H. Pegg wrote an unpublished manuscript entitled “History and Historians in the University of North Carolina, 1790 to 1950.” Pegg entered UNC as an undergraduate in the 1920s and, after earning his PhD, was a faculty member in our department from 1930 to 1975. His papers are in the UNC Library. Read Pegg’s history of our department here.
