Today (1988) the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UNCCH1 can identify its origins and trace its development to the present time. In the early years there was no department, either of Physics or Astronomy; in fact, there were no departments at all –there were only professors (e.g., of Mathematics and of languages) and courses with subject headings. Moreover, there was neither a professor of nor a course in Physics; although from the beginning there was a course in Natural Philosophy with a prescribed text.2 In 1795 this subject was well established under the older name, which was only gradually changed to Physics as the century progressed. Astronomy, which was customarily paired in college instruction with Natural Philosophy, was included in the first official plan of studies and was probably in the actual curriculum from the beginning.
