From Secretary to Dr. F. A. Middlebush to Leslie Cowan
Letter from the secretary to University of Missouri President Frederick A. Middlebush to Leslie Cowan, secretary of the Board of Curators, forwarding a letter dated April 11 from S. W. Canada, university registrar, at Middlebush's request. The letter concerned dismissal of Lucile Bluford's case against the university. 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.
