Biographical Note

George Heyward Dunlap, also known as "Floopy," was born in Rock Hill, South Carolina, on September 18, 1902. He obtained a degree in Textiles from Clemson University in 1928, and conducted graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of North Carolina. After a summer of playing professional baseball with a team from Greenville, South Carolina, he joined the faculty at Clemson. He became director of research for the Southern Textile Association in 1941, and assistant director of research for the Cotton Textile Institute in 1942. Among his notable research contributions was a study of cotton card speeds, which helped manufacturers boost cotton production during World War II. Dunlap joined the faculty at North Carolina State College in 1943, initially focusing on applied research, but his interests soon moved on to student affairs. He became the Placement Director at the School of Textiles in 1947, was successful in increasing enrollment by making more loan and scholarship funds available, and is credited with improving student-faculty relations. Dunlap was well known for his help and dedication to the students. He was elected the Phi Psi Man of the Year in 1960, and named one of the top ten outstanding teachers at N.C. State by the Alumni Association in 1965. George H. Dunlap died at Duke Hospital on January 14, 1969. He was survived by his wife Franky Wickliffe Dunlap; sons Dr. William Marshall of Richmond, Virginia and George Heyward of Greenville, South Carolina; daughter Mrs. Robert McMahan of Raleigh, North Carolina; brother Malcolm Dunlap of Rock Hill, South Carolina; and sisters Mrs. Albert Rawls and Mrs. Walter LeGrande also of Rock Hill.
