Duke, who established The Duke Endowment. The school thereby changed its name to honor Washington Duke, the father of James.

Its campus covers 8,600 acres with three adjacent campuses in Durham and a marine lab located in Beaufort. Most of its buildings were designed in Gothic and Georgian architectural styles.
