Collage of News Stories about Rockefeller's Visit

This collage of newspaper articles appeared in the December 1972 issue of CPC NewsNotes, a newsletter of CPC activities. The newspaper articles reported on John D. Rockefeller III's visit to Chapel Hill to present the first public report of the recommendations of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future. CPC NewsNotes included the following description of the event: Held at the Carolina Inn [on October 19, 1972], CPC's Leadership Council dinner attracted more than 200 business and professional leaders from across the state to hear John D. Rockefeller 3rd and Duke President Terry Sanford. Mr. Rockefeller, who recently completed his work as chairman of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, said that after two years of intensive study, his Congressionally-created group found that a levelling off of U.S. population growth would benefit the nation economically as well as socially. Former Governor Sanford urged North Carolina to form its own "commission for land use and population policy," and emphasized that "It must be endowed with position and influence and teeth." He expressed hope that his state would learn from the ugly consequences of unplanned growth in other parts of the country "before it is too late." In North Carolina, he concluded, "we still have time to preserve what we have, to grow as we should, to shape and establish a goodly heritage, as living and lasting pride of our 'Carolineage.'"
