a very popular and rare University of North Carolina coed displaying some Carolina colors in 1924
There were about than 800 male students attending UNC then [early 1920s], but only between 15 to 20 coeds. As a result every male student on campus knew the first and last name of every female. In 1924 there was a small fire at the women’s dorm one night and several hundred gallant UNC men ran in unannounced to rescue the damsels in distress. Most of them had already left, but one poor girl unaware of the situation was leisurely taking a bath when several men came in and offered to help her out. The embarrassed coed asked the boys to leave and said she could get out fine by herself.
