Course Description

Residents of the Research Triangle have a general sense of the history of Durham, Duke University and the Duke family. But myths, misinformation and confusion abounds. Let's run through a history of our homegrown Dukes. Do you know Ben from Buck from Brodie? Of the four Mary's, can you separate the patriarch's wife, daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter, one from the other? How does the university fit into the Duke family's long history of philanthropy? What was Duke before it was Duke? Who selected the name for the new university? Is it possible that the chief architect of the university never visited the campus to view his creation? How has such a relatively young university risen to world renown so quickly? Add your questions to the mix as we tour the history of Durham's Dukes and place this fascinating local story in context.  Lecture (plus Questions)  Field Trip(s)
