Catalogue of the Members of the Dialectic Society Instituted in the University of North Carolina June 3, 1795, Together With Historical Sketches (1890).
The names of active members alone are printed. They are given by years of entrance into the Society. In the great majority of cases this corresponds with the year of entrance into the University. By year of entrance is meant the collegiate, not the calendar year. Thus the year 1877 includes the fall of '77 and the spring of '78.
After each name is given the place of residence at entrance, then the degree taken in the University, or if no degree was conferred, the year of leaving college, together with all honorary degrees. Next are placed the date of birth, the various positions of trust or honor held, profession and present residence. If dead, the last place of residence is given, and the dates of birth and death are placed last. When no State is named, North Carolina is understood, except in such cases as plainly imply what State is meant.
The letter c. (Latin circa) before a date indicates that it is only approximately accurate.
M. C. = Member of Congress.
H. of C. = House of Commons.
H. of R. = House of Representatives.
C. S. A. = Confederate States Army.
U. N. C. = University of North Carolina.
The other abbreviations will be easily understood.
