Description:
Walter Jerome Mathews, traditionally called the first student at NC State, was interviewed in this 1966 recording when he was 95. In this interview he talks about first coming to the college in October 1889 and describes student life during the first years of NC State’s existence. Occasionally in the interview he uses objectionable language that reflects his background as a white, male North Carolinian who grew up in the nineteenth century.
