Triumph Of Good Will from the Author: John Drescher. "Both Terry Sanford and I. Beverly Lake were Democrats in the one-party South of that era. Yet they were different in almost every other way. Lake, a middle-aged law professor, was committed to segregation. Sanford, an ambitious young politician and lawyer, believed in expanding opportunities for all citizens. Their race was a heated struggle that would bind them together for the rest of their lives." "With unparalleled access to both sides and with an objective correspondent's hindsight view, John Drescher has written the story of a campaign that set the winning strategy for many who followed, and the biography of a winning candidate, a governor rated as one of the finest of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.

Oral History Interview With Terry Sanford May 14 1976 Interview A 0328 1 from the Author: . Terry Sanford begins the interview by describing early impressions of his hometown of Laurinburg, North Carolina, and his family background. He notes that his interest in politics was awakened early--both by his father's support of underdog and liberal candidates and by the 1928 Alfred Smith presidential campaign. Sanford describes the Democratic political dynasties and discusses how the Democratic Party maintained its political stronghold on North Carolina as a result of effective political organizations and the state's one-party politics. Sanford's political education began in earnest as a student at the University of North Carolina, where he became influenced by the progressive and liberal politics of UNC president Frank Porter Graham and sociology professor Howard Odum. UNC's law school also served as a political training ground for Democratic candidates, says Sanford; there, he learned organizing and campaigning strategies from the Chapel Hill-influenced political leadership. He ran as president of the Young Democrats, an established political training group. Sanford discusses the growing rift between the conservative and progressive factions within the Democratic Party, which ruled politics in North Carolina at the time. He recalls the 1950 race-baiting senatorial campaign against Frank Porter Graham and Willis Smith. Learning from this, Sanford vowed to defend his platform aggressively against his opponent's negative campaigning. Sanford explains his decision not to run for governor against Luther Hodges in 1956, due in large part to his relative lack of political experience. After his decision, Sanford gained more political experience through the established ranks of the Democratic Party and run successfully for governor in 1960 against segregationist candidate I. Beverly Lake. Toward the end of the interview, Sanford offers his thoughts on the administrations of his three gubernatorial successors: Dan Moore, Robert Scott, and James Holshouser.

Oral History Interview With Terry Sanford August 20 And 21 1976 from the Author: . Terry Sanford served as the governor of North Carolina from 1961 to 1965 and also as a Democratic U.S. Senator from 1986 to 1993. This interview is the second of two; it covers his political activities since 1960. It starts with his description of how he assembled a campaign team and raised funds to run for governor in 1960. He also explains how he made decisions as governor regarding food tax, tobacco tax, and civil rights. He continued to play a role in state politics after the end of his term, though he never wanted to be a career politician. Sanford participated in national Democratic politics before 1960, and he tells the story of his contributions to the National Democratic Convention in 1960, including his eventual support for John F. Kennedy's presidential nomination. Sanford decided to run for president in 1972 and 1976, but he did not succeed. Instead, he accepted the presidency of Duke University. While discussing that position, he describes changes in higher education in North Carolina since 1964. He also mentions how the role of media in politics has changed campaigns. He ends the interview by explaining why he believes that progress in North Carolina has failed since 1964.

Oral History Interview With Terry Sanford December 18 1990 from the Author: . Terry Sanford begins this interview with a discussion of the student demonstrations and protests that were sweeping Chapel Hill, North Carolina, during his years as the Governor of North Carolina (1961-1965). The protests, one of whose aims was to bring about open accommodations laws, were largely fueled by student activism. Sanford describes how Anne Queen, director of the YMCA/YWCA at the University of North Carolina, helped to calm demonstrating students. Sanford uses this episode to segue into a broader discussion of Queen's leadership at UNC during those tumultuous years, arguing that she turned the YMCA/YWCA into the "social conscience" of the University. He also describes his professional relationship with her during the early 1960s. Likening Queen's leadership style to that of Frank Porter Graham and William Friday, Sanford argues that universities (and specifically the University of North Carolina) played an important and unique role in the advance of social change during the mid-twentieth century. Sanford also briefly discusses his own support for civil rights and his bid for the governorship in 1961.
