Biographical/Historical note: Guilford College, a Quaker-supported four-year liberal arts school in Greensboro, N.C., was chartered in 1834 and opened in 1837 as New Garden Boarding School. The name was changed to Guilford College in 1888. During the Civil War, the campus became a station on the Underground Railroad as well as a center of resistance to Confederate conscription and requisitioning efforts. True to Quaker tradition, students at Guilford were active in the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1960s.
