Hazel Katherine Hill, Editor of the Daily Tar Heel, 1943-1944

Women filled many of the classroom seats left vacant by male students. In 1944, they numbered well over half of the civilian student body. The Daily Tar Heel andCarolina Magazine had their first female editors in 1943-1944. When male faculty left for the armed services or transferred to teaching in military programs, women had their first opportunities to teach in departments such as mathematics.
