BIENNIAL REPORT OF THE SECRETARY

OF THE

North Carolina Historical Commission

July 1, 1934, to June 30, 1936



To M. C. S. Noble, Chairman, and Heriot Clarkson, J. Allan
Dunn, George McNeill, and William K. Boyd,

Co mmissioners :

I have the honor to submit the following report of the North
Carolina Historical Commission for the period, July 1, 1934-
June 30, 1936:

ORGANIZATION

I. The Historical Commission.

On May 10, 1935, Governor J. C. B. Ehringhaus reappointed
Heriot Clarkson for the term April 1, 1935-March 31, 1941 ; and
appointed George McNeill to succeed Nell Battle Lewis for the
term April 1, 1935-March 31, 1941, J. Allan Dunn to succeed
Mrs. Thomas O'Berry for the term April 1, 1933-March 31,
1939, and Joseph Moore McConnell to succeed R. D. W. Connor
for the remainder of his term ending March 31, 1937.

Joseph Moore McConnell, having served as a member of the
Commission for only six days, died at his home in Davidson on
May 16, 1935. The following tribute was ordered by the Com-
mission to be included in the Sixteenth Biennial Report :

On May 10, 1935, Governor Ehringhaus made a happy selec-
tion in appointing Dr. Joseph Moore McConnell a member of the
North Carolina Historical Commission to succeed Dr. R. D. W.
Connor, resigned.

Dr. McConnell, head of the History Department of Davidson
College, President of the Building and Loan Association of his
town, member of the Board of Directors of the Bank of David-
son, and a member of many literary and scientific societies,
possessed to a high degree a happy blending of ripe scholarship
in the field of history with sound practical judgment as a busi-
ness man. This was shown in the gentle but firm manner in
which he conducted himself at the first and only meeting of the
Commission he ever attended. This meeting was held on May
14, 1935, and soon after he was called away from participating
in earthly affairs.

The Historical Commission wishes to place on record this
slight token to the memory of a historian, a man of judgment,
and a gentleman.
