University Day With Andy Griffith
Sat Sep 29, 2012
Forgotten in all the coverage of the passing of Andy Griffith ’49 in July was a performance I consider one of his finest and most unforgettable, when he was just playing himself. The occasion was University Day, Oct. 12, 1978, and Griffith had come home to Chapel Hill to receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award and deliver the traditional University Day address. It’s safe to say there hasn’t been one like it before or since.
