East Carolina University Alma Mater
The ECU Alma Mater is "Hail to Thy Name So Fair".
It first appeared in the 1940-41 ECTC Student Handbook where it was attributed
to a student by the name of Harold A. McDougle ('44). McDougle later became a
part-time instructor in the Music Department at ECTC (1946-47) and a music
teacher at Greenville High School (1947-48).
