Names in Brick and Stone: Histories from the University’s Built Landscape has been produced by the students in History/American Studies 671: Introduction to Public History taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Fall of 2015 by Dr. Anne Mitchell Whisnant and assisted by American Studies Graduate Research Assistant Charlotte Fryar.

To explore the histories of UNC’s buildings and their namesakes, we employ a combination of deeply researched long-form illustrated essays and a flexible visualization that assembles basic data about the over 250 structures that UNC’s Facilities Services Department classifies as “major buildings” (generally buildings over 5,000 square feet).
