Summary: See above

In 1932, the Western North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Church recommended the merger of Davenport College (another school under the auspices of the Methodist Church) in Lenoir, N.C., with Greensboro College. The decision was chiefly a financial one, and the process of working out and negotiating the details took several years.
