UNC English Majors Through the Ages. Illustration of portraits by Daniel Wallace, of imagined students from 1795, 1863, 1927, 1950, 1968 and 2022.

Illustration by Daniel Wallace, J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor and director of the Creative Writing Program. We asked the prolific author to help us generate excitement for a big birthday; English was first taught to students in 1795. Due to the pandemic, a delayed celebration will be held Oct. 28-30, 2021.

“With the celebration of the 225th year of English at Carolina, I began to imagine the kind of students we might have had through the ages. I did my research and came up with this. They’re all fictional characters but correspond to what students might have looked like at the time.” — Daniel Wallace
