Mrs. McDowell Presents Historic Item To College An item of inestimable historical value has been added to the Chowan College library. Mrs. Emily S. B. McDowell of Scotland Neck, recently presented to toe College a small picture of Dr. Archibald McDowell, Chowan's first president. President McDowell was the grandfather of Herbert McDowell, Emily McDowell's late husband. Although the antique frame which houses the picture of Ar chibald McDowell is considerably larger, the picture itself is only about 2" X 3". It was from this tiny mainiature that Mrs. McDowell painted a large oil portrait of tiie first president, which she has also given to the college in recent months. It now hangs in the beautiful main parlor of the "Columns" building. When complimented for her generosity in giving the time and talent necessary for the painting of such a portrait, Emily McDowell said: "This was my project for Christian Education from the standpoint of art." A new library building is one of the seven proposed additions to toe Chowan campus through the current Enlargement-Development program. Plans for toe new library call for a special wing which will house many items important in the 109-year (See ITEM page 6.) Chowanians Attend B. S. U.
