An unusual memory while at CNC: I retrieved my bicycle out of Philo Hall during the burning of Henderson Hall in January 1974 with members of the Philomathean Literary Society carrying out of the fire a 6 legged baby grand piano, 37 chairs, the president's chair and a gavel stone and stand (that were saved from the 1916 fire of the Henderson/Administration Building).
