hese are the men and women, listed alphabetically, who served on the University’s Board of
during the period July 1, 1967–June 30, 1983. In those years a Trustee’s term began
on January 1 and continued through December 31 of the fourth year. After a four-year term the
Trustee could be reappointed to another term but only after an absence from the Board of one
year. There was no limit on the number of terms that a Trustee could serve. Before 1981 all
Trustees were Baptist and were residents of North Carolina.
Each Trustee is listed by name, Wake Forest class if applicable, profession if applicable,
home town at the time of service, years on the Board, and Trustee offices held if applicable.
Some of the listed Trustees also served on the Board before 1967 and/or after 1983, but I
have included only those years covered by the Scales administration.
