From Lucile Bluford to Dr. F. A. Middlebush
Telegram from Lucile Bluford to University of Missouri President F. A. Middlebush regarding her denial of admission to the university's journalism school. She notes that she was referred to Lincoln University, the state's black university, but that they offer no journalism courses. At the time, Bluford was the managing editor of the Kansas City Call and seeking admittance to the masters degree program at MU's School of Journalism. After repeated efforts to enter the program, she filed a lawsuit against the university that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
