William Neal and Kate Bitting Reynolds

William Reynolds, younger brother of tobacco tycoon and founder R. J. Reynolds, was born in 1863. Both he and his wife, Kate B. Reynolds, were philanthropists for NC. They made selfless donations to various libraries, schools, and hospitals. In 1951, they willed their personal summer home along with 1,100 acres, today known as Tanglewood, to the residents of Forsyth County. They were also central figures in the plan that resulted in the decision to move Wake Forest College from Wake County to Forsyth County in 1956.
