In this eighth of a series of interviews conducted by Dr. Ed Perzel (former Chair of the Department of History and Associate Dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UNC Charlotte), Bonnie Cone continues to discuss the importance of 1957 as the year when Charlotte College made significant progress through expansion and successful acquisition of tax levies within Mecklenburg County, allowing the institution to seek accreditation as a community college and to receive state support. Ms. Cone also recalls the history of the Technical Institute, which was part of Charlotte College, the relationship between Charlotte College and Carver College, various significant downtown Charlotte restaurants where business was often conducted by the college's advisory boards, and college life during the 1950s.
