Colonel William Polk

Our chapter is named for Colonel William Polk, an officer and patriot who served and was wounded in the American Revolution. After the close of the war, Colonel Polk served in state and national offices and had ties to U.S. Presidents Andrew Johnson, James K. Polk, and Andrew Jackson. He was a banker and both trustee and chairman of the board of the University of North Carolina.
