Chapter Notes 361
3. Irving Carlyle was the son of Prof. John B. Carlyle, who taught
Latin at Wake Forest from 1888 to 1911. He was himself closely
associated with Wake Forest in his younger years and later set up a
legal practice in Winston-Salem. He served the state of North
Carolina in many capacities and at one time had strong backing for
the governorship. His devotion to the college was lifelong, and few
played a greater role in making the new campus a reality. After it was
built, he bought a home nearby on Belle Vista Court.

inflationary spiral, students found the cost of items included in the
survey inching upward almost by the month.
