Lewis P. Olds
In 1868, he was offered the presidency of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Kemp P. Battle wrote, "As there was no treasury in sight from which a salary could be drawn, Mr. Olds wisely declined [the offer of the presidency]." According to Battle, Olds was the son-in-law of then-Governor William W. Holden. He represented Wake County in the North Carolina Senate in 1870-71, when he voted against removing his father-in-law from office.
