Charles Phillips Russell
1884 -- 1974


The University of North Carolina has catalogued, to date, a single specimen collected by Charles Phillips Russell. Perhaps additional specimens will be found as we continue to catalog our collection.

Dr. Russell was a Professor of Creative Writing at the University of North Carolina from 1931 until approximately 1966. "He was apparently a very popular teacher," says Nicholas Graham of the North Carolina Collection. "He wrote several books, but the one that we get requests for the most often is These Old Stone Walls (1972), a collection of stories about Chapel Hill."
