Coming Back to the Old Campus

This year’s Old Campus Trek, scheduled for Saturday, April 8th, promises a full schedule of fun-filled activities and forums for students and alumni from the old and new campuses of Wake Forest University.

The morning begins at 9:30 am with a casual coffee and social period, followed by a morning program. Guests also will receive guided tours of North Main Street (previously known as Faculty Avenue) and the Old Campus. A picnic lunch will be served on the museum grounds, after which WFU students will lead a panel discussion about life at Wake Forest College featuring alumni of the Old Campus.

Atlas Ray, owner of a legendary store in the Harricanes, was among those remembered at the WFHA program on country stores. Just received several reels of 16mm film. Looks like 1950s home movies of the Demon Deacs in the Billy Barnes days!!! From the April 1961 Wake Forest phone book... instructions on how to use a dial telephone, how to dial a number, how to interpret ringing and busy signals, and what to do on a party line. Anyone else remember those days? This amazing photo from Sanford Bailey shows just HALF of the folks at the 1954 Powell Family Reunion!!!
