Thu Mar 30, 2006
William J. "Billy" Arthur, a journalist, publisher, legislator, businessman and a "wonderful symbol of Carolina," has died at the age of 95. Mr. Arthur, who passed away Monday, was well-known and well-loved for the enthusiastic life he led, his newspaper columns that kept people laughing across the state and his small stature, which never held him back from being one of the most popular men on the UNC campus and in the state of North Carolina.
