This image shows a luncheon held for the Board of Trustees of Appalachian State Teachers College (1929-1967) in the early 1960s. Four Board members can be seen sitting around a table, with a woman carrying a bowl of rolls in the background. The Board of Trustees has been a governing body of the College since it became a state-sponsored institution in 1903. The Board of Trustees was formed of members representing regional areas of Western North Carolina and managed Appalachian policies, finances, and development until 1971, when it became part of the University of North Carolina system. It now oversees Appalachian State under the University of North Carolina system's Board of Governors.
