A collection of photographs documenting the life and career of political giant Terry Sanford is on display at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy.
Sanford, as governor, U.S. Senator and Duke University president, was a champion for civil rights and public education.
The photographs illustrate some the highlights of Sanford’s career, particularly his time as governor. Many were taken by News & Observer photographers, such as these, which capture scenes during Sanford's 1960 gubernatorial campaign. The photographs were provided by the N.C. Division of Archives and History.
"We wanted to do something that would help anybody coming into this building understand its history and its roots," said Karen Kemp, the school's communications director who managed the exhibit.
Kemp said the exhibit will be expanded to cover more of Sanford's life and career. The exhibit is in the school's lobby and open to the public. Visitors should park in the Science Drive visitor lot. The school is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
