NCSU’s First African-American Graduate
NC State’s first African-American graduate, an electrical engineering major, was an important figure on campus at the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement.
Until 1960, when Irwin Holmes walked out of NC State with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, the university had never had an African-American graduate. He endured much during his time at NC State – a professor who gave him lousy grades for good work, cheap hits on the intramural football field, countless looks and behind-his-back whispers – but nevertheless he looks back on those years as a mostly positive experience.
Listen to the theme that runs through many of his stories. For every difficult incident, there is another one in which his fellow students stuck up for him.
“In almost every case, if the guy on your side knew you, race was not an issue,” Holmes said. “And that’s true in real life. When you have a real friend, you forget race.”
Holmes grew up in Durham, NC, at a time when segregation was a way of life in the South. He was a top high-school student and athlete, starring in several varsity sports and graduating third in his class

Orage Quarles III
Saint Augustine’s students interview former N&O Publisher

Quarles, who during 16 years as president and publisher of The News & Observer steered the newspaper through tumultuous times and led efforts to diversify its business, recently retired.
Under his leadership, The N&O doubled its roster of free community newspapers, launched Walter Magazine, and expanded its online presence. At the same time, the paper was hurt by the same economic forces that have diminished advertising revenue and triggered major reductions in personnel – including reporting staffs – at newspapers nationwide.
