James Glenn Driver Oral History

Show full item record

Abstract: This interview was conducted as part of the College of William and Mary Oral History Project. James Driver's first encounter with the College of William and Mary came in 1905 when as a freshman he arrived by train from his home north of Richmond. One of the advantages of William and Mary was that Williamsburg was right on the C.&O.line. Walking up from the train, which stopped behind what is now the restored area near Lafayette St., young Driver paused at Hall's Drugstore for his first Coca-Cola. Mr. Driver recalls the college population being 7 professors and 120 students, and some of these faculty members disapproved of the athletic activities which students joined.
