Excerpt from State Normal Magazine, Vol. 7: April, 1903

Many of us recall Dr. Curry's face and voice, and the evidence Of strong emotion indicated by them as he began his address with these words How could I refuse to be here? How could I refuse gratefully, and at the same time humbly, to acknowledge the high, although unmerited, compliment which this institution has paid me by identifying one of its significant and important build ings with my unworthy name?

Since the surrendering of his sword at the close Of the Civil War, Dr. Curry had given his life to the cause Of education. It was this that filled his soul and about this that he spoke most to us. In this last address he presented his view Of the educational prob lem in North Carolina. He emphasized the fact that our poverty is due to ignorance, that ignorance is costing more today in North Carolina than knowledge, that North Carolina would not fail if she did her work in the right spirit. He emphasized the fact also that our schools can do nothing without trained teachers, that neither the aims nor the ends of education are understood by our people. He called our attention to the fact that the broad requirements necessary to the training Of boys are not less essen tial to the training Of womanhood. He said society depends more upon the culture and in uence of gracious womanhood than upon any power Of man. He spoke of the aim and of the ia u ence of this institution, and of the work that woman has done for the world; among other incidents the work of the Red Cross Society, Of that of Dorothea Dix, as she pled for the infirm, for the helpless, for the destitute, before the legislature of North Carolina.
