From Dr. F. A. Middlebush to William S. Hogsett
Letter from University of Missouri President Frederick A. Middlebush to William S. Hogsett, forwarding a copy of a letter from NAACP attorney Sidney Redmond, and mentioning that Lucile Bluford's application to the university did not come before the Board of Curators. He requests Hogsett's advice in how to reply to Redmond's letter. 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, and repeated denials due to her race, she filed a lawsuit against the university that eventually was heard before the Missouri Supreme Court.
