Casper “Tim” Timberlake has a long history with UNC and Chapel Hill, including being a resident and later part-owner of the Glen Lennox apartments.
The Timberlakes go back generations in Lexington, North Carolina, from where a half-dozen family members went to Chapel Hill and graduated. Tim Timberlake arrived in the fall of 1950, leaving his year-younger girlfriend and future wife, Anne “Teen” Redwine, back in Lexington.
“We dated in high school and then I went to Chapel Hill,” Tim recalled with a slight laugh. “We continued dating and the next year she went to Duke in the fall of 1951. She decided she didn’t want to be encumbered with me her first year in college.”
During Teen’s two years in Durham, they stayed in touch and eventually got back together. They were married in the summer of 1953, Teen transferred to Carolina to major in teacher education and the Timberlakes rented a two-bedroom apartment at 114 Hamilton Road in the heart of Glen Lennox.
“That was a good way to start married life and I remember it well,” Tim said. “It was a real laid-back atmosphere. We were the youngest folks in that whole area, and we grilled out on most Saturday nights. We had some older friends, who were working at the university or were in graduate school. There were some young children, and we ended up doing a lot of baby-sitting that year.”
