Old Campus Trek

3x

The Wake Forest Historical Museum hosted the Second Annual Old Campus Trek, presented by the Wake Forest University Office of Alumni Services, the Half-Century Club, the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society and the WFU Traditions Council.

Approximately 300 invited guests enjoyed a day on the Old Campus, including a discussion titled Wake Forest: Then, Now & Tomorrow by Provost Emeritus Dr. Edwin G. Wilson (’43) and WFU Provost Dr. Rogan Kersh (’86); the dedication of the new Dr. George C. Mackie and Kathleen R. Mackie Lake Exhibit Gallery; and a presentation by noted scholar and author Dr. George W. Braswell, Jr. (’58) detailing his new book on religion and revolution.

The day ended with a lively trio of speeches about sports on the Old Campus from beloved alums Jack Murdock (’57), Marietta Perry Dormire (’56) and Gray Boyette (’56).
