Duke Checks


The Dukes, a Durham, North Carolina family that built a worldwide financial empire in the manufacture of tobacco products, long had been interested in Trinity College, the predecessor of Duke University. In 1924, in memory to his father Washington Duke, James Buchanan Duke created the family philanthropic foundation, The Duke Endowment, which provided, in part, for the expansion of the Trinity College into Duke University.

The Duke's huge 8,000-acre campus is home to thousands of students willing to work hard for their grades. The Duke University has a sterling reputation and prides itself in the rigor of its academic and success of its athletic programs.

The Duke University men's basketball team is the fourth-winningest college basketball program of all-time and has won four NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championships -- second most of any ACC team.

If you want to be reminded of the idyllic days of your college experience, the Duke Personal Checks are perfect choice for you. And if you are sports fun - even better - use these Duke Checks to show your Blue Devil Spirit.
