description
Lecture delivered by Jenny Puckett. The case could be made that Harold Wayland Tribble's Wake Forest years actually began in 1946, four years before he was hired. The post-war conditions on the old campus led directly to the Great Removal Program, a huge task for which Tribble was specifically chosen in 1950. His first six years as our 10th president were beset by multiple crises on the old campus, and there was no relief in sight upon the opening of the new campus in June of 1956. Only the last two years of his presidency were relatively peaceful. Tribble's strength, thick hide, and tenaciousness brought Wake Forest through seventeen critical years that culminated in university status for the beloved old college.
